"Looks like a good transfer of fret positions.  A good method.  But where is the head stock?  I am curious as to where you take it.  Good wishes. "

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
these guitars have totally changed my approach to playing. I've been playing 6 string for years. but the thought process to
transcribe the music from 6 string guitar to a four string CBG has made me a much better musician . each guitar I build is a learning process. even if I only learn what not to do on the next build. on my latest build I made the neck and fret board from scratch. I used the cb gitty fret board template and miter box
and was surprised at how easy fretting a cgb can be . the feeling of pride I get when I finish one of these guitars is beyond description . I never thought I could build an instrument from scratch . but now with some imagination anything is possable
