I have built about 8 four string gits and 2 three strings. I like them both, but I am not really a player. I think the 3 strings have some advantages, but I am not sure what they are other than being slightly easier to build and play.
Also wondering about converting a 4 to a 3. Simply take off a string? Or should the nut and bridge be modified to get proper string spacing?
I would like to hear some opinions on this from veteran players/builders.
This topic is like the prodigal son, or the geese flying south in winter.
Here's a link to the most recent discussion of 3 vs 4
Oh, like Harleys vs Jap bikes? : )
Thanks for the reply.
they are your instruments, you can do what you want with them. Shane converts 6 string guitars to 5 string by cutting the 6th string and bob's your uncle.
Or you can re-do the nut/bridge to move the strings to a more centered position.
Lots of other folks would say "build another" instead, LOL
