yard sticks for fret boards

  I purposely prefer to find old thick & wide yard sticks that measure 1-1/2" or just a bit over.  Check out my LPG's  they work great with 3 or 4 string set ups.See More

thanks for askin raymond. i have used boards from computer speakers that i have found at garage sales, they work ok. the best thing i have found is using the guts from a danelectro honey tone amp, i like the way they sound in a little cigarbox.. hope to see another cool build from you. Happy Holidays and have a Happy New Year.

Welcome aboard, Raymond! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBB, CBU, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).

Most of all, have fun!

Tres.
