Here's little something I just finished doing  - Joya De Nicaragua CBG. The first CBG I've made.


The neck and fretboard are made of mahogany. I made the neck with dual-action truss rod. Fretboard has 15' radius.    Nut is made of moosebone, The bridge/pickup is Ted Crocker flatbed combo customized by me. I removed the original brass bridge and replaced it with customized 2,5 inch nail. The box was bought from tobaccoshop and it cost me 5€ ...  ;)

I'm surprised how good it actually turned out - The action is nice and low, intonation is good, it sounds great plugged/unplugged. It's all good, damn! 

Here's a link to photos:

Feel free to comment.

Regards,

Antti, Finland.

Where is the Ning text editor when you need it?

So many typos.

That second one should read should be "a nail on a boar". Why do I try?

That should be "a nail on a board". I thing a nail on a board would make for a pretty hard to play guitar. ;-)

Nice bridge. Is that an antique square nail? Or did you file down a round nail to a square one? Or am I just hallucinating? Maybe I'll try a nail on a boar as a bridge some time. Oh, and you say the bridge is based on a Ted Crocker flatbed combo bridge/pickup you modified. Pretty cool!

I actually built a CBG in honor of our friends from Finland.
