"Use Poplar, pardner.
The grain in Oak furniture is beautiful, but on a CBG Neck, the 'waviness' of the grain makes the long straight strangs look weird.
And sandin' Oak is brutal.
Oak is quite porest, and installin' the Frets…"
"Yeppers....git the Gittyman Manual and follow it to a "T"....that way if you get stumped on somethin', I can do a better job of heppin' ya out.

"Haha, I do like the music on your site.
As someone who's never made a guitar yet I may just have to get your manual! So what would you recommend: If I got your book, should I follow it to a "T" and build a 3…"
"Ask around....the Gittyman Manual is the most complete and most detailed resource for makin' the CBG.
It is designed with the 'newbie' in mind, and it is very simple and basic in how it is written.

I have been having trouble fretting and yes I am a newbie. :) But brave and jump in. LOL Anyway Keith Standford sent me to you.
PJ - Send a message to Mordacai Bondurant here on CBNation and ask him to email you a picture of the neat little homemade gadget he made to straighten curved Fret Wires and also to insure both curve & straight Fret Wires stay in place on the ends.
As a matter of fact, it might make sense for you to just go ahead and pick up his GittyMan CBG Making Manual.
So I guess I am here asking help and I also checked out your site and as soon as my money uploads to pay pal I plan on purchasing your book. Your right on the overload!! I have read and seen so much I am not sure where to go. The fretting seems to be my biggest issue. They seem to hump in the middle. The wire is curved. And I got it from CBGitty. Anyway I hope your book will help. Just wanted to introduce myself.
