I recently made a cigar box guitar for my father in law in germany. He plays guitar so I am trying to convert. I know there are a lot of "how to" in english, but is there anything in german?

You can convert any old radio  nifty 1950's and 60's radio bodies…See More

"So Paul,  looking over the schematic, if I take out the toner knob, where does the capacitor go? on the second pot or maybe the jack?"

"That's right. Just turn up the one you want and turn down the one you don't want. Blend in both if you want. I'd use 500k pots and try a .047 cap since you'll be using a HB and piezo. You can change caps to get better tone -…"
