"The scale is the distance from the nut to the bridge. Which kit did you buy? It may have the scale in the description or instructions."

"Determine the scale length then measure from the nut. For example, if your scale lenght is 24” then you measure from the nut 24” down and that’s where your bridge goes. You may have to tweak to get the right sound. My first build…"

"Reso-Plate" 3-string License Plate Resonator Guitar Kit

I posted in comments then realized I should've posted here.I built the reso-plate kit from CBGitty. Not sure what the wood is and I'm looking for finishing tips.As a novice woodworker, finishing is the one area I know little about, but I'm learning.

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I like the uniqueness and simplicity of them.
I like the sound as well.
I like that they can be built and played as simple or as complex as you wish.
I was in Nashville for my cousins funeral and that's when I got the inspiration. I hope at some point to make some CBGs with him and his brothers picture (who is also passed) to give to family members.
