I've read where one builder makes sure the neck going through the box does not inhibit the top from vibrating. I've heard elsewhere that a builder attaches his neck to the top of the box.
Are both options viable or is one more commonly used?
What would be the sonic results of each method?
That's great info, thanks guys!
I'm surprised because I hadn't thought of the neck being on top of the box before, so that is yet another variable. I actually was thinking of it going through the box and then being shaped to make or not make contact from below.
Wayfinder, can you describe the differences in the sound of the three designs?
I understand your joy in not knowing the end result in advance, but I'm likely to only be able to purchase one more CBG (or build it, if I have the patience, so having an idea about the result is very helpful.

volume or sustain, thats the inherent tradeoff, work out whats your priority and there you go...
