Hans replied to Cause the Blue rat's discussion Bob Dylan's 'Knocking on Heaven's Door'.
"I play G - D - Am / G - D - C / G - D - Am / G - D - C - D for the verse. And G - D - Am / G - D -C - D / G - D - Am / G - D - C - D for the chorus. (But I have to admit that this is a six-string song for me. I've never played it on a CBG...…"

"Thank you!   Still so important "...to remind your fellow man that this kind of thing still lives today..."  and that "if all of us folks that thinks alike, if we gave all we could give...""

"Wouldn't it make more sense to install real snare wire like in a snare drum? You could even add an on/off mechanism (you'll find ideas for that in many cajon building videos...)"

Tim Hooper replied to Hans's discussion Truss rod without power tools
"My fault Taffy, I did remove the bits of card prior to gluing it all together. Any rattles can be eliminated by adding a little bit of tension to the rod. Tim"
Thursday
Taffy Evans replied to Hans's discussion Truss rod without power tools
"Hi Tim, that all looks good, but an observation if I may. I feel it would be more beneficial to use a wood infill on top of the rod. Over time the cardboard is liable to compress and leave you with a loose rod. Also the rod is then pushing against…"

"I don't know but does an arrow shaft bend when pressure is applied between the thumbs? If it does It will probably bend with the neck. Taff"

Tim Hooper replied to Hans's discussion Truss rod without power tools
"Inspired by this thread I've just completed a neck for a 'normal' 6-string guitar, using an adjustable truss rod within a laminated neck. The guitar had yet to be completed, but it looks OK so far! Tim I taped little bits of card to…"

"I got mine from a German luthiery supplier, sort of the European equivalent of StewMac, and they were pricey as well. I think they're pricey wherever you get them. I coudn't find cheap ones anywhere..."

Taffy Evans replied to Hans's discussion Glue for carbon fiber rods?
"Hi Hanns, in the manufacturers parts list that I buy from bar is flat rod is round. In any case your on the right track. Just so others are not confused. I don't glue because the tightness of the fit of the bar in its slot forces any glue out…"

Hans replied to Hans's discussion Glue for carbon fiber rods?
"I'm a bit confused with the wording, Taffy, but I think what you call a bar is exactly what I called a rod here... The things I'm going to use are rectangular and 10 x 5 mm. So you don't glue them at all? Why?"
Sep 16
Taffy Evans replied to Hans's discussion Glue for carbon fiber rods?
"Hi, I use carbon fibre quite a bit in necks and reinforcement inside the guitar. Not CBG's. I would recommend not using rod or tube in a neck,but a carbon fibre bar. When inside a tight fitting slot in the neck a bar has  a far greater…"

Hans replied to Hans's discussion Glue for carbon fiber rods?
"I will. Will be a slow process though, because I don't have much time for Guitar building these days and I alsmost exclusively work with hand tools... Thanks for all the good glue advice, guys!"

"That's exactly what I'm planning to do: two equally spaced carbon rods. And it's going to be a short scale bass (30")."
