Thank you Poorness! It was totally worth thinning and bracing the paperboard top - added a ton more projection than my first 'as is' paper box builds when I started out.

Tom, anyone who makes a post, on the page, will get all the responses in their emails. for those who post after them. Unless you block them. Same for pictures, and the threads.

Some really nice workmanship on that build... and it sounds great.

Hey thanks Keith! It's tuned Dadd bottom to top. I use Elixir Nanoweb 80/20 bronze on my finger-picking guitars. Weights: D:30 a:20 d:10 d:11. This gave me the most even tension across the neck. Hoped to go up a gauge but nope, she told me she's fine right where she's at - unless I want a dip bowl for my chips!

Wow on the sound. Both acoustic and electric. What is it tuned and type of strings? Has a sort of banjo sound. Really Like it. You are also a good at playing it.

Thanks Guys! This one got a little scary since I thinned the paperboard top down to 2mm (and a scosh less in some spots) then X-braced it and put a bridge plate and the top STILL deflected about 3mm under the bridge with strings on! It's held steady for 3 weeks now but looks like I won't be putting heavier strings on :-)
