"Hi Joe, I have done this a bit different. I fitted a tin lid over a wood box, It looked like a tin cbg but had a wooden top under the tin lid. The wood box was made the same size as the tin box. I wanted the best of both worlds - an attractive lid…"

"Justin Johnson has a guitar that's a small galvanized tub with wood top. I've seen the baking pan guitars with wood top and just about anything else. Whatever you use, just make sure it's strong enough to hold up to string pressure…"

Joe Arbour replied to Mark's discussion Shaping Necks - what do you use.
"Usually rasps and sandpaper.  Surform to rough it out and a finer rasp then up through the grits. A couple times I used a large peice of cherry half-round topped with a 1/4 inch fretboard and it worked really well."

"Thanks for the reply Timothy, I was thinking the same thing as you, Ovation guitars.  No rules is the motto around here, so why not?"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (mrjamespollard@aol.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
