For a wider neck, get a couple of 1x2s from Home Depot, and one stick of 1/4 inch by 1.5 inches. Glue stand them on their sides and laminate them together with wood glue, the 1/4 stick in the middle. Cut to shape.

howdy slowfoot,i have a link to the history of the tennesse music box,i will post it here for you if i can.i decided to try out building a few of them keeping as much as i can to the original appointments but adding a few modern appointments. they are basicly squarebox dulcimers with different applications for tuning keys and frets and things like that.  http://home.usit.net/~sandyc/mb.html   here is a nice informative link that will answer a lot of your questions.

Hi! I set up a group for CBG players in and around the Twin Cities. It'll be a great way to network with local players, start up jam groups, teach, learn, and play. Join if you're interested!
