ILL GREEN replied to Jeffrey Blessing's discussion Fret width / depth
"Just by taste.  Also some buy their frets for the ease of nipping and installing like the low narrow frets; they are easier to nip than wide jumbo frets. I buy gold medium frets when going all gold hardware, even the nut is polished brass. Most…"

None so far.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I have an interest in woodworking and a desire to make inexpensive instruments for lower income families. CBG's look relatively easy to put together, easily customized, and cheap to get the parts. Plus, I just love folk instruments, and have an interest in clowning and thought something like this would go well with a hobo clown character.

Jeffrey, I scored big time on some white Corian to make nuts if you are interested.  I pulled about 12 feet out of the trash at a company that builds cabinets.  What I like about using the Corian is that I can file it after installing it and fine tune my action.  I cut it on a chop saw or you can use a hand saw.  Let me know and I'll drop you off a chunk next time I'm over in Stage Coach

Jeffrey, I was in King Dollar in Tomball yesterday and saw they had some Stainless Steel dog dishes, 6 in in diameter for a buck and a quarter.  They were pretty decent.

Just got time to go over my page and take a peek at what else is on this site.  I think I'll have plenty of folks to get good info from.  Have you been playing a CBG long?  I've never played one and sucked at slide guitar on my six string.  Hoping less strings will help.

Hi Jeffrey. Sorry I didn't see your post. We were travelling but now at home. Nice to know there is someone else with the same interests living nearby. I can't make up my mind on building a 3-string or a 4-string so I think I'll build both. Always looking for advice and input.

Welcome to the insanity of CBGs - I'm in the Spring side of Houston and a novice builder myself. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

To Be Cannibalized: 1976 Ovation 1132-1

This is an old Ovation that got wrecked by the ravages of time, string tension and suboptimal storage conditions. At the very least I’m going to use the tune...
