"Music stores that do repairs and upgrades on factory instruments often save the take-off parts and sell them pretty cheap. I haven’t actually used any of the 3 or 4 string pups, nor have I tried a piezo in a cbg. I also haven’t built…"

"Amen, I can never predict the outcome of a given build. I've been happy with most, but it's always exciting to hear one for the first time to understand what it sounds like."

"Hi Arthur, others on here will give a more detailed opinion, but here is what I have found. The 3 string pickups I have used are dirt cheap, that's why I use them for guitars that a beginner or occasional player might use. For a better sound I…"

"6 string, 4 string, 3 string, it doesn't really matter. They will all work. The sound will vary by the box and stiffness of the neck. They all have their own voice and the sound may well be better from a cheap 3 string box than a high roller…"

"I noticed you didn’t mention adjusting the heighth of the pickups, did you try to moving them closer to the strings? That would make them louder? Maybe post a few pics of your setup?"

"Use a 6 string pup with a high ohm reading, 8-10K or higher. I used a vintage DeArmond pup with a 12K reading on my SSS clone, sounds awesome!!"

Pickup query

Hi All,I've made a number of CBG's over the past 12 months or so and believe that with each one the actual build is getting better. However, I continue to be disappointed with the sound. There is never the clarity, particularly on the bottom string but also on the others, that I can get with a six string pickup instrument. I have used a number of different pick-ups but they all have one thing in common, they are all made specifically for 3 string instruments.I have a Roland amp and a six string…See More

Paul Craig replied to Arthur Payne's discussion Copper foil tape as shield. in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"Shielding the inside of the box can be necessary To help with feedback, electrical fields in a stage setting and RF issues. A lot of musicians will shield the cavities of their guitars(solid and hollow body). You can use the copper foil to cover the…"
