Roger Martin replied to Sloth King's discussion new CGB what strings????
"Since he's finished building already, how about him just moving the nut or adding a second nut further up the neck so he doesnt have to wind the strings up so tight and still get the tuning where he wants it? Sort of like a permanent capo."

Hello,
I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee

Hello
The winding wire i use was purchased from Ebay heres the link for it check them out
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/500G-WINDING-WIRE-MAGNET-WIRE-0-63mm-23SWG-22AWG_W0QQitemZ110332225405QQihZ001QQcategoryZ4667QQtcZphotoQQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1713.m153.l1262

good prices also - you would get a good 5-7 4 string pickups form this spool of wire
the only other place i know of is Stewmac in the usa !!

No problem mate
Why not try making your own pickups ? - dont know if you have looked at my photos of the pickups i have made - should give you a idea how to go about making one - it's easier than you would think !!.
glad you like my CBG'S

regards

Hello Mate
Yes another brit and a Yorkshire man - come and join the Brits Are Coming Group !

i have seen your Question regarding using a Bass pickup for a CBG - yes you can use a Bass Pickup but the pole pieces are spaced apart more than a regular guitar Pickup - but you can overcome this by mounting the pickup at a angle to the strings - this will in theory close the pole pieces to match the string spacings
hope this helps
