George Everet Thompson replied to George Everet Thompson's discussion First timer. Wine box resonator: electric possible or not? in the group 6 string CBG's
"From what I have gleaned here is my plan: the wine box is 10" x 12.5" x 4" with 3/8" thick sides all around. I will have to reinforce it, but it has to be disassembled anyway since it is a little beat up. I plan on getting a six…"

First timer. Wine box resonator: electric possible or not?

Stumbled into cigar box guitars by accident, now I want to make one for my brother. Have a 3 bottle wine box he gave me and would like to make a six string resonator.
