Does the brass tube give it more of a ring to the sound.

You are correct sir, the Padron does sound wonderful! Really kinda Nashville. Got that twang. Love it.

Hay Travis thanks for checking out my vid the tuning is just a 1-5-1 tuning D-A-D what ever you want to call it.

thanks for the comments Travis. the jacks you ask about are stero/mono,and they work great on thick walls. i got 20 for $40 bucks, that will never happen again. i do use screws for fret markers sometimes, we often use what we have and i have alot of them.. as you build more and more you will find what works best for you, so just dig in and make a cool lookin cbg.
