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.

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 :-)
