Del Pucket is the man for internal box spring reverb, he builds them all the time, not sure if he's here on CBN but check this out & others on his channel. His channel is excellent for tips on building generally.

Hi and welcome Phillip, If you cant find inspiration in the photo video section of this site I 'd suggest googling  Cigar Box Guitar Images.

Springs? I do not know as I have not tried them myself. Some say that springs on the tremolo bridge of a Strat add something to the sound, and they are very short and tight. But then lots of different people claim to hear lots of different things that others cant.

To have any effect I would think that the springs would have to be excited into motion by soundwaves within the box, So maybe  they would have to be "tuned" to work sympathetically, somewhat like the fine strings on a Indian Citar. Just thinking out loud.

Cheers Taff
