"I personally wouldn't use the type of cone that screws to the top. The whole point of a reso cone is that it floats on the lip of a tone ring (or sound well). Not being connected - screwed on glued to anything - allows the cone to do what the…"
"yeah . . . I've seen quite a few of them over the years (have built several . . . both cigar box and bent-wood pieces).
They're a ton of fun with a diatonic scale. Cool sound. I like leaving the bass string single, as a drone"
"I'd venture a guess that most CBGs are tuned to some sort of open tuning. There are countless variations that approximate a chord, such as GDG, AEA, DAD, EBE. Makes it very easy if you want to just strum along and play basic slide.
"Yup . . . that almost always works. No need to reinvent the wheel on this.
I generally use a zero fret, but glue a bone or plastic nut against the end of the fingerboard for use as a string guide.
Prior to the gluing, test fit the nut both for width…"
"Very true, John. I don't do CBG videos often, but when I do, they have to come in immediately with my fastest licks, continue at that tempo, and not run over 1 minute. Otherwise, the analytics will show that time spent watching is…"

I bought the taper jig years ago from Harbor Freight tools (was probably $10 or so . . . but I don't think they stock them these days). I have some carpenter's squares too, but for scarfs I like this better (mostly because the…"
"I generally use a 12-degree angle (scarf joint) on my headstocks. Usually add wings, shape, and drill the pegholes.
The scarf for the angled headstock is simplicity itself, assuming you have a table saw and a taper jig (about $25 on Amakazon). …"
