"Ok...sounds like staying with Chromatic is one less new idea to add to the mix and will aslo go along with my basic 6 string training.  Ya for my fretted neck I see that I will need to build it up.  "

"Diatonic (dulcimer) tuning is great on a dulcimer or strumstick but obviously limits the songs you can play. I'd stick with chromatic for a guitar but as always, no rules. My main suggestion is to build one at a time while you are learning what…"

Fretted....

Hey folks,So I am about to start work on my 1st CBG! Ordering parts now and will start in early Dec when back from a vacation. I have 4 that I want to build right off. That would be: Non-Fretted slide, Fretted, License Plate and a Resonator.  Already planning building for family and friends. As I watch vids and look at online pics of awesome instruments, I am seeing that fretted generally sit above the top of the box lid by about 1/4 in. I definitely want to move into my own fretting quickly…See More
