"Nope, never. Just hand sand my Pine necks until all corners and edges are gone and I'm done. contributes to the rustic feel of the guitar."

JP Lace Master replied to Eliah Holiday's discussion Favorite pickups and position?
"Depends on what sounding you're looking for you. positioning a Piezo is one thing; it'll affect the volume and resonance depending on where its mounted inside the box or whatever the body is made of. An electric pickup depends more on its…"

Fergus Lester replied to JP Lace Master's discussion Cookie Tin CBG Canjo
"I will probably go with a through neck too, and the other end of the 'neck' will be the tailpiece. Also toying with the idea of bracing the tin as you would an acoustic guitar top, but maybe thats for Mk II. And yes, both electric and…"

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion Cookie Tin CBG Canjo
"the bridge is resting on the neck itself. the way it is built, the neck goes right through to the end and is bolted onto the lid, so the tin itself is taking none of the strain. However some of my other builds have not got this feature and the tin…"

Fergus Lester replied to JP Lace Master's discussion Cookie Tin CBG Canjo
"is your bridge resting on the neck or is the tin itself taking the strain?"

Fergus Lester replied to JP Lace Master's discussion Cookie Tin CBG Canjo
"I was thinking of open G but I see your point about lower tension so will see what works. WIll be using a through neck made from oak so that should take the tension but not sure how the bridge will rest on the tin yet. I have some piezo discs and…"

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion Will this work for a Banjo?
"That was my thinking and having looked into it, I could have this as a banjo or a uke, literally a matter of what strings I use on it that will define it."

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion Will this work for a Banjo?
"This I knew, even chose a tin that will work best with this length, the bridge is going to sit near enough in the middle of the tin."

Uncle John replied to JP Lace Master's discussion Will this work for a Banjo?
"Remember for the frets to sound their desired notes and chords that the 12th fret must be in close to the exact middle between nut and saddle.  If it is 10 inches from nut to 12th fret, there needs to be 10 inches from saddle to 12th fret."

Uncle John replied to JP Lace Master's discussion Will this work for a Banjo?
"It should work.  Better for a 4 string than a five.  Kind of a banjo uke scale.  Good wishes."

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
