I just wanted to thank everyone who commented on my CBG build. I apologize for taking so long to write back. The idea for the saw blade came from wanting a metal resonating plate. I ground off all of the teeth to make it user friendly. the string guides where all cut out of a length of half inch aluminum channel. the fret board was a piece of oak I had standing in the corner of my garage. I think I might actual add fret bars. To answer Uncle John, I can't play this thing at all. I have never really had any musical talent but through the course of building this CBG I've actually thought about learning. I tried to mention as much as I could remember from the comments you guys had made.
Thanks again, JFB
