Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?

What instruments are you building or playing?
I'm building a four string guitar. I'm building my own box for it, and wiring it electric. I have one of Ted's Flatbed bridge pick ups to try on it. I went ahead and bought a blank fretboard, cut it down to my through neck width and fretted it.
I started a bass project with an old short scale neck.

Hi Adam,

The real creator of sound/tone is the relationship betwen neck and box. The wood used for neck is as important as the box's resonating quality. If the box is too heavy (thick walls and top/bottom) then a piezo will be limited in how much vibration it can translate. A magnetic pickup would me limited too.

The shape of the box can affect sound/tone too, but with all this said there is no right or wrong way to look at it. Most important is to build and play and have a good time doing both.
