JP Lace Master replied to gordon barnes's discussion Maduro all wood box, top(thick), or bottom (thin) for sound board? Effect of short vs long scale length on tone
"In terms of Scale length, unless you're using an already fretted neck, its dealers choice really, its a matter of personal preference and your comfort with the instrument. I've got 30 inch scale 3 string baritones and I'm…"

JP Lace Master replied to Frank Scott's discussion String Gauges -3 string ?
"the 017, 026 and 036 in Open G shouldn't cause any problems, I got a length of pine for a neck running the total length of the guitar with Open G without any problems. Oak could probably hold something heavier without any problems."

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion New Double Neck Canjo build
"Taff, when I play a double neck, I wild strum, it hits all the strings, mutes the bass string and my free hand is for the slide. Its not just the tuners, the strings as well, I buy standard packs of 6 and just divide them up, the other 3 strings and…"

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion New Double Neck Canjo build
"the bracing is rather simple, I glued and screwed the neck to separate length of pine, which also serves as a nice little heel, which goes through the full length of the tin and is screwed down with the hinge tailpieces. And I love the fruit and nut…"

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion New Double Neck Canjo build
"Thank you Korrigan, the headstock is a result of necessity, the wood for the neck is too thick to get the standard machine heads through, so I use a separate thinner piece is usually required and I know the pics don't show it, but it allows for…"

Taffy Evans replied to JP Lace Master's discussion New Double Neck Canjo build
"Hi, that looks good. Question: how do you strum when you have both hands on the necks? That's a good way to use a six string set of tuners, three one side and on the next build three on the other side.  Taff"
