Hi all - please don't ask me to make a 6 string acoustic guitar! I specialise in building stuff for nothing

this is a small 6 string guitar I built a while back gave it to my brother . I play a similar home made 4 string version dose that count?

Cool stuff Gary, I'm going to make a discussion thread soon for people so they can post six-stringers they have made.

Building a 6 string acoustic is above my pay grade, but here's some of the 6 strings that I pick on from time to time.  D-35 that I bought in '67 with the strap I made in '68 ...has had more beer spilled on it than some folks have drank.  A Tak set up for easy playing in my old age.  A solid walnut lap steel that I build but found that I really don't like C6 tuning. My dobro which I'm going to really learn...someday. 

My favorite 6 string is the Composite Acoustic which I gave to my daughter.  It was one of the demo models they first built and it is (IMHO) the best guitar ever.  It lived with me on a sailboat and never complained about the water or heat.

Great stuff Russ, remember to post these in the official threads!

Here is a photo of the last guitar I built this past season, before it got too cold to work in my garage anymore, shown with a matching three-string bass, which I have since sold.
