Blues Frog replied to David Bowes's discussion Number of frets to use?
"If you're only bringing the frets to the can and not extending over it then I think 15 would be plenty. If your extending the fretboard over the tin, then do 18."

i hear you about the obsession with CBG's. my son thinks i'm weird because i took apart an old showerhead...the thing with all the holes that the water goes through will make a nice speaker cover

Hi, haven't been to my page in a long time, just saw your post. I don't have a real shop, just my workbench in the basement and power tools in garage. I'm just outside the village, where are you at?

Hi Blues Frog , just enjoyed watching your videos. You don't see many people using full size humbuckers. I have a pair of 'em from a Satellite Les Paul I broke in 1986 ! Is there a reason they're not used much? Sure sounds good on your CBG .

Went to the transfer station today and this is what I found! A pile of cigar boxes just sitting there!

I couldn't just leave them there! There's too much potential.

What do you think?…
