This is the second CBG I've built.  Used red oak from a big box store for the neck. (It's what I can find and afford).  Wired in a humbucker and a parallel wired pair of piezo disks to aftermarket…Continue

O, and yes as easy as three stringers are to play...the down side is they only play simple easy music...you can't play much complicated music...but there no brainers for playing while watching TV or while the wife is talking!

Awesome stuff!!!
there is no invite that I emailed, this place is for everyone!

I don't plan on posting, it's for people who make 6 stringers regularly or need questions answered on that type of construction. It looks like you guys are light years ahead of my simple 6string stuff.....I have only ever made them in the simple Bo Diddley one pickup style,...anyways, I look forward to seeing more.....But hey don't forget....post some videos or sound clips....guitars make music!!!

Nice one Three string. Definitely the place for me to be as I am having real problems playing just 3 strings. I need more time and patience, I know, but I will get there in the end. I have been playing 12 string for so many years I find it difficult to play anything with less strings. Until then I will finish off my 6 string builds and see where I go from there. Will post photos as soon as they are done. I have put acoulpe on to get the ball rolling on a much needed group. HOGS.
