Hi Peter,  Like your cbg builds.  Glad to have you for a nation friend.

Peter,

For this one I actually bought the fret board with the slots pre-cut. I think it was 23 7/8 inch scale.

I tried standard coated bass strings and also the "weed wacker" nylon strings as shown. I crimped ferrules on the ends to secure them in the bridge.

Thanks,

RL

I have found a couple at secondhand stores around the city and actually went to a place in Lodon Court in the Perth CBD called Devlins. They sell cigars and cigar boxes but they start at $20 for an empty box which is a bit rich and against the whole idea I reckon. They had a bout 30 to choose from and also have a store in Subi I think if you ever run out. Cheers.

You have some pretty neat pics there mate. How long have you been doing them and where do you find your boxes?

Thanks your comment but sorry no plans and also no step by step pictures. Actually it's a very easy and fast project. You just use the housing of the light. You stick a 5W speaker in it , drill the hole(where the wire normally comes out)a little bigger, cover it with any kind of plate(ofcourse with a hole or holes), make a small wooden stick(a normal broomstick is just the size of a mikeholder) that fits the mike and thats it.
Success ! in case you have plans to make one. grtz. Werner

Peter, you are very welcome. I am working on my 2nd build and thinking about the 3rd and 4th builds to come. I am still learning while making mistakes. But I love building them. I haven't learned how to play except one tune----Shortin Bread. Thank you for your kind comments on mine, thank you for the encouragment. Happy building.

Hey Peter, you have some very nice builds. Great job.
