hi everyone, I have build some more CBG guitar, and used both scalelenght and fretboard calculator to get it right. Tune to GDG, I using youtube to learn the how to play, but my CGB sounds like S...!…Continue
I think I've solved the problem after watching Dale Puckett's video on youtube, where he tells about backangle. So I saw more of the neck where it had to lie under the lid and glued a small block underneath, to raise it. It has…"
"Are you using a bolt or round rod for the nut, and did you set the frets from its center, or the edge of the nut slot, which could knock out the intonation.
which is easy to fix by cuttin a little more from the side of the nut slot, or shimming the…"
"Hmmmm, last silly suggestion. Is your guitar tuned the same the one you are playing along with? As an example, if anyone tried to learn Coceine Blues off of the video I just posted on here, they would find they do not match note for note. My guitar…"
Thanks for all the feedback, it is so great to sit on the other side off the world and get so much back THANKS :-)
I will try some of the things and I will get back as soon that I hopefully get it in tune.
I will try to deepen my problem,…"
"Hey Thomas, if you have a listen the guitar in the Blue Lagoon for Sale post, just posted, Blind Doughboy is playing/fretting that guitar from the nut all the way up the neck.
It has he says, an action/string heights of 5mm at bridge saddle…"
"Thanks Pick, I never thought of blowing it up. Yep that should play ok at the nut [ at least it should sound like Amazing Grace] if the Bridge is moved to allow for the higher action.
On the guitar I just played/posted in the video section,…"
"Strings need to be high for slide - low for fretting. Setting up a git for both is difficult and takes a good bit of practice to play both well. I usually set the string height at 3/16" off the fretboard to play both and about half that…"
"Hi, for me it's hard to diagnose a problem like this without having the guitars on the bench.
In my experience your action, string height, looks ok, not too high to make the guitar play " nothing like" the piece you are learning…"
"Yes , your string action is a bit high on all of them . a smaller bridge and nut should help on nr 2 and 3 . But your First picture , the neck is lower than the body , so a smaller bridge may not work without the strings…"
"As I have written I have done a scale length so from nut to 12tf should be the same as from 12th til bridge
I have thought about the string action have can I prevent that, put in some smaller bridge ?
what does it mean nut is off? strings are not in…"
