Silverliner. My first attempt at a Tin Box Guitar. I bought this metal Dutch biscuit (cookie) box from an old antiques store. Cut the centre picture out and inserted 3-ply guitar scratchplate laminate. Box is strengthened with ply. I thought I would try to use the laminate as a fretboard to match... a bit tricky cutting and inserting the frets, but managed it. Neck is laminated walnut and oak , lightly stained and polished. I decided to insert some shaped off-cuts and a line of fret wire along the tail and head stock to finish. Chrome bolt-ons/electrics and butterfly machine heads. It feels solid and nice to play. Tuning is presently GDG.

Dave, Don, AGP #, Uncle John -  I appreciate and value your kind comments.  This was a bit of an experimental build for me, particularly with the scratchplate fretboard, but still fun to build... I did wonder if it would work. 

Comment by Uncle John on March 21, 2019 at 8:29am

Very nice.  I like it.  It's kind of too fancy for what I like to play, yet it would sure look great on the wall and to take down for an occasional spin.   Very cool.
