Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

Hullo there fellas, um I am in the process of making a 3 stringed  guitar based upon an old nail box. hopefully I can attach some pics. While I have marked out where the frets would go (based upon a normal guitar, all spacings being made the same). At this stage I reckon maybe I will go without frets initially.  Currently I am waiting on the arrival in the mail of a peizo rod pickup and small pre-amp etc, that is delaying the final assembly  Thinking ahead, I am after advice on the bridge, specifically is it better to set the bridge at right angles to the string or at a bit of an angle?  If it should be an angle then how could that be measured. I'd appreciate any comments. Cheers Pete

If it's fretless there is no need to angle the bridge.

Thanks for your advice Jim, peter
