Are you ready for a Football Soild body CBG?

Here we go. I took a football shaped candy box & made a CBG out of it. (I hope the pics I'm posting here don't come up every where else.) 1. I stripped the box of everything but the outside skin which I filled with 3/4" counter top material sanwiched between 1/4" plywood in the lid & bottom. (Making it a Solid Body) Routed out where things should go & fitted the neck  (Maple, oak fret board, med/med frets, 25.5 scale, rosewood nut & cheap tuners) 2. Home made Bridge (wood &…See More

"I'm sure there is some kind of hard case that will fit a CBG or Bass, I've just not found one yet. BUT! I found that a Fender Squire Gig Bag for a mini Strat works on most "standard" size CBG's."

Bob,

Thanks for the input.  I will post some pictures later of the pickups I bought.  I also bought some stuff to wind my own which I may do if I am feeling ambitious.

Wilkommen to the balalaika strum site. To answer your question, yes, they ARE primarily 3 string. The prima and alto versions are tuned E-E-A. Oh, and one other SMALL detail. You use your thumb to fret a lot of the chords! Hope that helps!
