- Hand Wound or Humbucker Magnetic Pickup, uses any electric guitar strings
- Sound Hole
- Silver Corners
- The Same wire frets Gibson and Fender uses for intricate chording and excellent tone.
- Contoured and lowered headstock for better intonation.
- Contoured (rounded) underside of neck for easy playability.
- Hidden single coil pickup to preserve the unique cigar box artwork. The pickup is inside the box, all that is visible is the screws/pole pieces.
- Most models have a 5th 4th 3rd and 2nd strings, however you can use heavier gauge strings.
- Red oak neck - hand made, the best wood for a guitar neck, light and very easy to fret and resistant to bowing
- Tuned to Open A: A E a (Tune it however you like)
I make sure the action (string height) is low enough for regular fretting but high enough for slide playing. A lot of CBG's have strings up to an inch above the fretboard (!) That's way too high even for a slide only CBG but if you like your strings crazy high or crazy low, you can adjust the neck height with the neck bracket I put on all my CBG's.
