I was using stainless and will have to check how thick it was. I think it was thicker than the .06 you used. I made so many changes and modifications to it I named it Frankentar. I finally did find a good use for it, firewood.
Yes, the image came through, all right!..That's fantastic. The peek of the neck looked interesting. Is the fretboard inlaid? How did the sound strike you when you first strung it up and let-er-rip? thanks Gordon
Thanks for the pic. while looking at the workmanship, I couldn't help but wonder, "is this guy an ex model ship builder too?" Is the copper tp an Idea for aesthetics or like to make the whole top a giant resonator? National steel cbg. Thanks again Mr Johnson, G.
Ran into sketch of neck installation, found intrigueing. Neck hollowed out to and bottom to fascilitate vibe. It looked like the neck was glued (front and rear) the same way, that is, where it contacts the bottom anr the front and end of the box, but not the TOP. Is that to allow maximum vibration of the top. Thanks, Gordon
Thanks for the advice Michael! I have a two inch hole saw I was going to use but it would leave an 1/8 of an inch gap between the edge of the sound hole cover and edge of the hole on the box. Is hot glue sufficient for filling in the gap and providing a firm bond or should I use superglue as well?
Hi there Michael, it's good to hear from you, yes I am interested in resonators.
I am setting up a workshop to start building cbg,s.
I have been slowed down after having an operation on my cervical spine, which has left me having little or no feeling in my right hand. But I will not let this stop me building, it will just be a slow process.

Thanks Fred. I've been kind of doing that, But sometimes I get a little off. I'm working with the basic tools. Some time I'll get some real one instead of the preschool stuff I have. Thanks for the feed back.
