Ok i hought i would pick some brains and hope to learn somthing  i know wen it comes to cbg there are no rules but i must know this on a 3 string fretless cbg should the bridge and nut be installed so the string runs straight and even from bridge to nut would it sound and play better or not See More

"The reason builders have space between the top and the neck is the guitar will be louder acoustic.  It allows the box top to freely vibrate to get volume and tone. The rules change when you go electric..."

Well ok i am confused here   i seen a build video by glen that he has a space between box lid and neck  and then i see a pos on cbg on how to build a cbg and i see this  i have copy and paste it so you can see it     The idea is to have the tightest fit possible. Remember, you want the lid to close easily over the neck of your guitar with no bowing of the lid (notch not deep enough) and no space between the neck and the lid (notch too deep)    well   WTF   please someone tell me why See More
