My first Build

Posted on January 18, 2016 at 7:39am 9 Comments

My first build, learnt a lot! Happy with everything except the neck bows when the stings are tuned, lesson learnt, slightly fatter neck needed, mines 18mm plus 5mm fretboard, next one will be 24mm plus fretboard, there is a strengthening piece glued under the neck in the box but I think the housing for the pickup weakened it a bit too much!
What do you guys think?

Hi,

I'm on my first build, a three string, I'm a complete beginner, my favourite sound is finger style slide blues, I have been researching lessons and courses to get me going and have come across  learncigarboxguitar.com can, any body recommend this site?

Regards Garry
