"Thank you Skeesix for your reply.
Yes, that what I thought, thanks for confirming. I was looking at a P Bass pickup and wondered if P90s could be wired the same because I would like to make a gitty without a 3 way switch and figured that will be the…"
Hey guys, I am starting to get my hands dirty in making my own homegrown pickups. I figured a custom CBG should have custom pickups.I decided to tackle the P90 design because thats my favorite sound thanks to Jimi Hendrix ;)Anyway, I been searching for answers but the info is kind of vague. I would like to know if two P90s can be paired in a series like the P Bass pickups? Also, will this transform the P90s to a regular humbucker that will kill the P90 mojo?I have seen reversed polarity P90s…See More

"Carbon fiber I heard of, never used it because its kinda new, though the military has been using it for years. Its light too. I noticed Stewmac sells titanium rods for truss support.
Good info, and incredible build Taff! Thats super nice.
"Round or square, I stick em in the necks. Steel rods work best for me. Aluminum will bend over time.
On another note, walking the dog, I noticed someone threw out a 12ft solid plank of pine wood. I took that home and chopped it up to…"
"I've chopped a 23" scale fret board to a 20.825" scale for an electric guitar. I just cutted off the first two frets to accommodate the size and scale. The tone is a much darker growl. You would think it would go higher at a short…"
"I only assumed you're a luthier because your name reminds me of PRS' for some reason :) Besides, Paul Craig Guitars does sound like a made company.
Thats some awsome history. Glad you decided to return to building, every man needs a hobby.…"
"Oh thanks for that info about sustain. You must be a luthier right.
Me, I'm no luthier. I learned from a Les Paul DIY kit and absorbed its construction for weeks before building it. After that build, I had extra hardware pieces that I thought…"
"Yes, Ha, its an old Craftman router my father bought from Sears when we lived in NY back in the 90's. Its all steel and sturdy. They don't make them like they used to but it holds firm. Maybe a little movement from the vibration of the…"
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I love guitars of all kinds. Its the sound and tone of them that attracts me. The thing I love more about CBGs, is the nature of building something out of nothing. Taking average, everyday material and creating an instrument that will fly you to the moon and forget about the world. I don't know if the word exists to describe the world of ingenuity CBGs are, but its dank, dirty, garage, gully and best of all, funky.
