Up here in the northwest, (Washington State) they make nicely decorated gift boxes for smoked salmon. This top is from the Quinault Indian Nation for their smoked salmon. I made a larger cedar box to put under it using box joints, then made a maple neck. I do bolt on necks similar to solid body guitars but I sink nuts into the neck under the fretboard and use bolts rather than screws. This has two piezo pickups under the bridge and a volume control. The box is 3" deep and 14" long so it has a nice acoustic sound.
What did I do wrong with the photos? :-)
The photos look good to me. Great build. Cedar makes a good mellow sounding box and the print on the top looks good.
Ah, okay, thanks! They don't show up on my side.
Yes, I prefer cedar for the boxes and there is plenty of it up here in Washington State.
Great looking guitar. The box is perfect!
