Easy Box Trappy Easy Box Trappy
Easy Box Trappy from $27.00
MGB Guitars is proud to introduce their Easy Box Trappy enclosure. According to Bill Jehle this shape for an instrument body dates to the early 1800s, before cigar boxes were created. This innovative trapezoidal enclosure has two sides with two distinct uses. One with a sound hole and one without. The box comes in three versions, one with no control plate opening, one with the control plate on the sound hole side and one with the control plate opening on the back. This box was designed and built using the same principles used in acoustic instrument construction. The box is built using purfling and braces to create an incredibly strong and rigid structure. Additional reinforcements were added to key locations to allow when securing bridges. Cover plates are available to cover the sound hole when it is on the back side.  Measuring 12 1/2 inches long, by 4 1/2 inches at the top, by 8 inches at the bottom and 2 1/2 thick, the box is made from thin ply with a top veneer of Sapele. This box provides a perfect canvass for creating your own piece of musical art. The box head and tail are a full 5/8 thick. They are sufficiently long for almost all styles of builds.

U-Bass Kit with Box U-Bass Kit with Box
U-Bass Kit with Box $125.00
This kit does include a box. This kit includes all the items needed to build a 20 (see note below on intonation) inch scale electric U-Bass. The neck is made of Okume and the fret board and bridge are made of Walnut. The boxes are made from Sapele and well reinforced for this application. Polyurethane strings are provided as well as a bone nut that is fitted to the strings. The neck includes a preinstalled hanger bolt for mounting to the box.  The heavy duty tuners are made specifically for this type of instrument. Unlike other tuners  you will need to disassemble the tuner to install it in head stock. Remove the screw, gear and axle before installing the tuner body. Reassemble and and add washer and ferrule. Tighten with a 15mm wrench. Normal string winders will not work and we suggest you use our 24010 winder which will accommodate the oversized knobs on these tuners. Due to the mass and size of the strings we have found that a scale length of 20.3 inches works better for intonation. The strings are anchored on the bridge using knots on the inside of the box. The bridge can be glued to the box however we prefer using screws and finish washers.  The electronics package includes a compensated piezo pickup, preamp/equalizer, tuner and battery box.  Openings for the preamp and battery box are included. The battery box uses two 2032 (not included) round batteries which are installed positive side up. A plug will need to be installed in the jack for the tuner to operate. Tune to EADG. Special note: As the strings are soft and the leading edge of the nut is quite sharp, oftentimes the strings will bind on the nut and the gears will grind till they fail. The solution is to lift the strings over the nut as you tighten the tuners   If you need help feel free to call Eric at 727 212 7221   Check online for videos on installing U-Bass strings.

Ghost Pups with harness Ghost Pups with harness
Ghost Pups with harness from $17.50
In some builds it is preferred to place the pickup under the lid of the box, this practice is often referred to as "ghosting". Many builders have had good success using the MGB flat pups for these applications.  MGB is proud to introduce our new Ghost Pups. These flat pups/harness assemblies are ideal for ghosting. The pickups include a high quality 3M adhesive pad for securing the pup to the lid of the box. They work best if the surface of the box is relatively smooth. Additional adhesive such as E6000 may be needed for rough surfaces. The harnesses includes volume and tone pots along with a jack. A ground wire for the the bridge and the hardware are also included.  500k pots are used on the double coil pickups and 250k pots are included on the single coil pickups. The Lucky 13 and Point Five O are stronger pickups and best suited where the distance to the string is greater than 1/4 inch.
MGB CBG  Cheat Sheet MGB CBG  Cheat Sheet
MGB CBG Cheat Sheet $1.00
Many builders are not musicians and have limited musical skills. It is often to difficult to know exactly how to tune strings on various instruments. MGB is not a musician and created his own cheat sheet to help him with set ups. While many musicians can get pretty close with tuning a string by ear, others (like MGB) have no idea where they are on the scale. MGB quickly realized it was helpful to use the corelating frequency for tuning. The A note has  frequency of 440HZ. The Pano tuner app is very helpful, it provides the note and the frequency. The 88 keys on the piano are listed on the left, moving to the right are popular note tuning for a number of instruments.  While there are many tuning possibilities for cbgs listed are a few popular choices.
