I just googled that Jaffa tin, You are right its got Banjo stamped all over it, soon as i see one im scoffing the jaffa cakes & building one!

Comment by Greg Henshaw on October 26, 2019 at 11:21am

Okay it’s confession time! It wasn’t a Terrys chocolate orange tin I saw last week but a Jaffa Cake tin! Doh! Yes age is a factor lol. However I still think the tin would make a great guitar/banjo. I can’t make one myself as I have trigger fingers problems in both hands making my grip weak so is there anybody out there fancies giving it a go? Greg

I also buy on E-bay and use Chinese suppliers for pickups. Machine heads from various places. Frets for Stewmac in bulk. Some times Chicken Bone Joon in the UK.

Hi Rich,

Like Martin, I tend to buy on Ebay. Quite often I use Chinese suppliers. Usually cheaper than British ones. You might not have to wait so long for delivery as we do!!

Good Hunting

I get all my bits and bobs on eBay

Comment by Rich Butters on October 22, 2019 at 11:01am

Hi I am a Brit but live in Thailand.  Its difficult here to get Cigar Box build material.  I can order from UK.  Wher is the best place to order Piezo's, pickups and cigar box hardware

Cheers

Rich

I'm struggling to find an image of the tin on internet so i'll have to try and take one myself.It is shaped like an orange segment not like the one on ebay!

Comment by Reg Seward on October 21, 2019 at 9:10am

There is a Terry's tin on Ebay at the moment for a tenner...!!!

Comment by Alan Budgen on October 21, 2019 at 9:08am

Greg, Waitrose have a large embossed sixpence tin, which would be good - so long as the bumps don't get in the way!

Comment by Greg Henshaw on October 21, 2019 at 8:01am

I've just seen the Terrys Chocolate Orange tin for this Christmas. It is crying out to be made into a guitar/banjo. So who's first?
