Thank you for that great complement. But not yet I just put allot of my time and jeans passed down to me from my Grandfather, who was a great artist, as for me I've played guitar for 36 years and know what sound I need for a CBG and start from there.I use my lap as a work bench with tools that would make you laugh.

V. Slim, you know I figure unless I'm planning on selling 'em (I don't) they don't have to be pretty, just creative... they need to feel and sound cool, and if they look cool (esp. from found object junk) that's a plus... but not a necessity, ha! So yep, I suppose I'm pretty fearless with my builds. Re. your question: I have not yet gotten back to my Snuggles Bottle git, but when I do I'll post pics and let you know how it sounds :) A few other projects took priority over that one for now... -Glenn

Thanks for updating the link to wfret; I didn't realize it wasn't working. It has worked well for me. Love the variety in your builds. Keep up the great work.

howdy julz,just stopped by to say-i will probably have that zino tri-can resonator done by the weekend,i work on it a little bit every day after my 40 hour job. today i got the neck established,next attach and trim fingerboard,then i will be ready to set the tuners in place.i know once i set the tuners i will set the tailpiece and put strings on it so i can hear what it sounds like.then after that i,ll add frets and do the finishing up of it.after the strings are on i will do a sound check video so folks can hear it also.thanks for the comment.

I think they might work as strap attachments, maybe tailpiece or bridge too, or maybe a wall hanger, we'll see!
