Easter Weekend Build: Baritone 5 String Canjo

Got an itch to build a Baritone Biscuit Tin Guitar a while ago and this weekend, not being particularly hungover, I decided to get it built.I had an old Encore Lefty neck laying around so that was easy, I then decided on a suitable tin, which I had…See More

"I had never done any of this before I started building Cigar box guitars. But the more I do it, the better they are coming out. I think you'll find the same thing once you do it. Have fun with it!"

First Time Building a 4 string Tenor Banjo Canjo

a while back I bought this short scale Burswood neck; not sure what it came off of, but it had a 20 inch scale, 19 frets and everything needed to simply bolt it on to something. I didn't want to build a junior guitar, so I look around at what instruments can have a 20 inch scale and I came across the Tenor Banjo and the Ukulele Bass; same scale length just different stringing, thought Banjo would be better though.So I spent a couple hours out in the sun and got this thing built, big deep tin so…See More

"I make the necks myself. This one is Ukulele scale 15" with Dulcimer fretting. I use the Gitty fret scale marking set for accuracy then I do the fretting myself."

JP Lace Master replied to Mike Kinzie's discussion Bolt on necks
"I use a lot of bolt on necks for my builds, attaching them is easy enough, I use a length of wood down the box or tin to mount the neck and then wedge a second piece between the length and the lid to mount and brace the…"

Well, the one I have made is made of a Biscuit Tin, whether you can call that a Cigar Box guitar, I don't know, but the tone when played acoustically is beautiful
