Hi Duncan, I can see Ju has already been warning you about my banjo habit. I think secretly he's jealous. Me and Ju have been talking about getting to a gig soon so we will give you a shout and we can all hook up.
well your not on your own when it comes to shite playing - i'm not to good either ... more of a builder than player lol ! - yes mate i make 3 string guitars infact i'm just making two of the Plank Style three string guitars
well i'm a joiner by trade but theres no work around so now i build guitars :)
yep me and anthony are on the look out some gigs in sheffield or round abouts if you fancy heading out with us some time i'll give you a shout - went to check out Catfish Keith last November over at Maltby it was a wicked gig - if you ever get chance go and see him
looks like you made a fine job of your first two builds keep up the good work - i started building CBG's in 2008 - built around 20 so far and about 120 pickups - just on with two of the Plank guitars now ...keeps me active lol!
Sorry i only just got back to you mate ! - oh cool man your not far away from Anthony he's near woodseats - but saying that he's a strange sort .. he's a banjo player ..haha lol ! no i'm just kiddin hes a great guy look him up he's on here see the link
I've used both 650 and 604 scale lengths.I usedthe 604 on a Gran Corona box like yours in the photo ..this gave 23 frets when the fingerboard continued over the box front to a conventional sound hole ..thought the proportions looked right.
You'll find a good fret calculator at Manchesterguitartech.co.uk
