Hey--I asked on the chat room, and I'll ask here: I need ideas on what to do with a silverware box I just bought from Goodwill (LOVE me some Goodwill!). It's on the big side. I'm not sure what to make with it, a 6-string, or a bass, or....
If I make a 6-string, I'd need to cannibalize a parts-only guitar for the neck or bite the bullet and go eBay for a fretted neck. I have no gear for installing frets.
A bass--that would be easier to figure out.
Now, I could install a reso, but the wood is pretty sturdy and nice, so I don't know.
Would it help if I posted pics?
Cool! Good luck and good job on the bargain!
A lot of these boxes were made of nice wood, mine is a cheap box that has a Masonite top, Balsa sides and some kind of thick fiberboard bottom. Didn't have a lot of trouble cleaning out the inside of the box.
I like where yours is going and I'm following along. Good Luck with yours as well.
