Thanks Dave. I think coming back for second helpings is probably one of the best compliments there is so I'm really pleased to hear that. 

I used six strings from a twelve string pack this time whereas I've always used two sets of six strings previously. I really like the octave change on each double course and think that could be what you're hearing in there. Also, I realised this time that the thinner string from a twelve string set sits above the thicker string in the pair which, again, I think has made a difference. Either way I'm really glad that you like it so much. 

I'll be posting all the photos from the build and how I figured out how to build it as well as the math involved so that folk have the opportunity to build one for themselves if they'd like. It took so much time to make that I doubt it would be a viable business for me and it's good to give back to the community when I've received so much myself.

Thanks again, Dave. I really appreciate it on this long, sleepless night filled with the back pain of nightmares.

I listened again Bear. Man that thing sounds sweet! The double course adds a lot!

Thanks Nancy. Great cat pic again. I was looking back at my earlier videos on YouTube just the other week and I agree this one is a long way removed from my first builds haha. I'm so grateful that I found out about cigar box guitars though. Less than 3 years on but I'm loving it more so now than ever. 

Thank you for your continuous support and kind words Nancy. It's the wonderful people on here like you who make this stuff that much more of a delight. It's hugely appreciated.

Thanks Richard  Glad you like it. More of a video to follow soon hopefully  Unless the whole thing implodes or the neck totally gives way. Not good thoughts for a natural born panic mechanic! Wish me good fortune. I may need it haha. Thanks again for your kind words  Greatly appreciated.

Big box sound, impressive! Looks awesome. Future six stringer? Nice demo tease Bear.

Thanks Danny. I'm a fair old novice on playing double course three strings still but I wanted to build a three string tricone yet needed enough string pressure for the three cones to make them ring enough. I still need to micro adjust the string action and get on with my plans to tart it up but I'm really happy with it. Thanks again for your kind words. They mean a lot to me.

Thanks Clarky. I appreciate your kind words. I'm overjoyed with it and almost scared to dismantle it because it came out so well and wondering if it will go back together as well afterwards haha. Thanks again :0)

Cracking guitar you've made there.
