Well I've been at it for almost 7 years now, cbg's and their rich history as well as artistic expression have made a HUGE impact in my life. Now I am hoping to use my skills and passion to do the same for others.

Hey, Jonathon.  It's good to be your CBN friend.  Good music on this page.  You have built some cool stuff.  You should tell us about them in the future.  Above your pictures, click on options, then edit and you can add info.

and about half way down the page you will see the link for the Wfret download. Wfret will print out the paper template for the fret positions.

Hi Jonathan,

 

To build a neck, I would need box dimensions, plus where on the box you want to place the bridge, plus scale length.  Then we would be looking at some idea of action (high, med, low/fast), bolt-on or neck-thru, tail or tailless and headstock design.  I would be able to offer you a good variety of woods to bulld from (both for esthetic and performance purposes) and tuners.

 

Yes, for a full-on neck I would want both tuners.  I'll have 10+ hours and some real investment in parts and would have to build a CBG body so that I can fully set up the neck.

 

If this is OK with you let me know.  I'm working against a hard deadline for building at the end of April before surgery and a move in May.  I have with plenty of projects so would need to get yours going before I shut down.....

 

thanks,

the best,

 

Wichita Sam

 

BTW, You have one of the best music selections on your player of any in the nation.  Nice mix, sweet sounds.... - WS

Just checked out you diddley video. Why was I expecting a southern drawl. Damn my pre conceived notions..... I'm really only interested in the pickups I have all the other stuff. If i took the pickgaurd I'd only wanna try to put it on a box that would be a waste of a nice gaurd. let me know if you wanna do straight cash or trade plus cash.
