Thank you Ted. I was supposed to retire this time last year. One I complete my workload perhaps I can get back to hand building some intruments, or at least m\aking those I've already made more playable! Best wishes.
Hi ted thank for b day wish.I just finished a cbg that i made out of a oak burl that i sliced with the sides from a old school house desk and decorated with civil war pieces my favorite being make my bridge from a domino with a embedded pickup
I’m building my first cbg. I have been an acoustic player, and this is my maiden voyage into electric guitars. It will be a fretted 4-string. In terms of pickups, I’m thinking about using and mag and a piezo under the assumption that they will have different sound qualities and being able to blend them or use them independently would be good. In terms of controls, I’m thinking that in sequence I would need one first to be able to mix the two pu’s and then tone and volume controls for the mix going to the amp. First off, what do you think about the mag and piezo combo? Is there a mag pu you would suggest for that (I prefer a mellower sound as opposed to a harder, metallic sound)? Is there a wiring diagram on your site that does what I described?
I will really get around to posting some info on my builds soon, too busy building at the moment!!! But some video of my son playing the four string biscuit tin we built at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGyXfNkNe_w
The fact that he's an English classical guitarist doesn't stop him playing German Metal in a school concert!
hey ted, been away from instrument building for a couple of years but i might 'get the band back together' soon for a final build - question is what to make? i seem to have everything i need already...
