Thanks, Brian.  I am looking forward to interact and see what everyone is up to.  I am new to Cigar Box Guitars and am about 1/4 of the way done with my first attempt at building my own.

Thanks for the comment, the video was helpful I already started designing my first build, so I won’t follow the exact tutorial but still thank you.

Thanks, BrianQ! I’ve been building since the beginning of the year and having fun interacting with the folks at Gitty. I’m looking forward to learning more from the folks around here and contributing where I can.

I have now printed off his 23" template which I will use on my next guitar. In ukes I prefer Tenor scale which is 21". If I do produce something I'll post some pictures. I will put up some pics also of earlier completed projects if I can find them!
