"on a piezo, grounding isn't the issue as on a wound pup.... if you don't have any stray leads... and if you have a good jack and if you had a good pot, then the most likely problem is a cold solder connection. Have the iron nice and hot,…"

"Mornin. This is one reason I don't use controls on my boxes. I let the amp do all the work. You need to make sure the case of the control pot is grounded to the jack. May even need to ground the strings as well. Do this by drilling holes in a…"

Electronics Problem

Hey guys how's everything goin ??I'm just wondering if anyone could help me out...  I've wired up a few CBG's successfully but lately i've been having a few problems with humming / feedback..I'm just using a piezo buzzer with a volume control and of course a 1/4" input jack.   For some reason when you plug the guitar in, there is a slight humming sound.  When you touch the volume knob with your hand the humming sound is really maximized.  And what seems even weirder is that when I touch the…See More

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

Steve.
Shane has put my CBG building article in the free plans section. I have "stolen your Piezo diagram" for it.

Please forgive me. BTW it works OK

Hey Steve...I like your detailed photos. They have cleared up a few things or me and have given me some ideas. Couple of questions..... When you have a box with a thin top, it looks like you are gluing the neck to the top, then when you close the box, the neck fits into the slots cut in the bottom. Is that what you are doing? Also, it looks like you are adding some bracing/support inside the box. Does that help with the stability and sound?
