My wife has been really upset with me lately because of my "obsession" with The Monkeys (the band).  She said she might even have to divorce me.  I totally thought she was joking.... BUT THEN I SAW…Continue

"Spaghetti western.   Love the second bluesy.  I just sampled, but it reinforced my belief that you are one of the top few combined builders/players around.   That sasquatch sure roars.    "

What is the piece that you first played in your YouTube video titled "EQUALIZERS"?
Also I'm doing my first build and I'm glued to your videos. I'm trying to figure out the cut at the tail end of a 17" cigar box? You go from 3/16" to 3/8", how do you determine that calculation? I'm using a 25.5 scale 17 frets which places the bridge at 9.5" from the front end, should I go with a longer neck?
Thanks for any advice

I really liked your The Versatility of the "3 String Cigar Box Guitar" video. I'm curious about the nylon string gdg guitar example. Looks like it would fit in a airline carry on bag. Not much info out there on using nylon strings with 3-stringers. What scale length and strings were you using? I know how to figure tensions out with steel strings, but I have no clue with nylon. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Del. Just wanted to say I find your videos really inspirational. Just watched your latest YouTube video on your 3 string CBG. You mentioned it's fretted in the E minor scale. Forgive my ignorance please but is that the 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11 (for the middle string blue note) & octave? You're inspiring me to try a ruler neck and the same fretting.

Please, please keep up the awesomeness. I'm a fan already!
