I'm new to the community - a bass player actually - but recently bought a 3 string CBG and am loving it. Already got an amp and am using it in a few songs with a blues band.
My question is this: does anyone build a 4 string CBG with the neck angle set for low action so that it can be easily fretted (not played with a slide)? What I'm seeing so far is lots of CBGs with high action for slide. Not so many designed for low action. When I get around to making my second purchase I'll be looking for a 4 string that has this feature in particular. Would love to know who those builders are.
you arr kiding right?
Perhaps I should mention that since I made the original post I have found a four string with low action and purchased it. Plays like a dream. So for me anyway, the search for an instrument to play is over, but the conversation about how to build one is still interesting.
That said, Wayfinder, I really enjoy seeing the things you build. Excellent work!
