Megaphone practice amp.

"I was a case of opening up, snipping off the mic from the two wires, then soldering on a standard 1/4" Jack. Mine started making annoying buzz so I ended up buying a cheap practice amp."

"Yeah figured. Sounds a little quiet accoustically, but that could equally be the fretless nature. I have found the source of a larger heavier "Victoria Biscuits" tin in my local ALDI for £5GBP, nice and deep so more guitar like."

"Laminated ply is the way to go. Its so strong. Have a look at my pictures and find the Foxs buiscuit tin three string. This kneck is made from some roofing ply left on site by builders at work. Whats more it looks so good."

Welcome aboard, Carl! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBU, CBB, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).

Up in the Free Resources menu at the top, you will see a number of plans for building and playing cigar box guitars/ukuleles/banjos/dulcimers/violins. I encourage you to download any of the plans, take a look at them, and ask questions from there. Also our site is VERY searchable. I bet you your questions have already been asked, so take a few moments and look around.

Join our Chat sometime (see the bar at the bottom of your browser page). Keep in mind that tho the chat window says there are X number of people online, not all may have the chat window up.

Most of all, have fun!

-Wes
