"Thanks Ted.   I've been distracted this year setting up a new home so my CBG stuff has been put on the back burner for a while.  But I do keep track of all the new builds and tips that are offered. Cheers,  Frank"

MAKE ZERO FRETjpg

"It does work as long as the fret spacing remains the same. I have tried similar only in my case I attached a small hard extention instead of the original nut which I never had. I glued and screwed the extension and mounted the zero fret in the seam…"

MAKE ZERO FRETjpg

"OK, lets stir the pot. Put your stinkin' thinkin' caps on. Go outside the box. I'm a fan of the zero fret and a method of "easily" converting a normal nut to the zero fret has been bouncing around in my head the past few…"

Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
Someone on the Cigar Box Guitar Builders Yahoo Group posted the link. I did a bit of looking around the site and found good content, information, and a bunch of folks I recognized from the Cigar Box community that have always been a positive influence on me.
What instruments are you building or playing?
I build 3, 4, 6 string cigar box guitars, cookie tins, dulcimers, strumthings, etc.... still exploring the possibilities and applications of different building materials, designs, sound qualities, etc........ My focus is keeping that home made, warm feeling, theme with my builds. Always willing to explore the "what if" factor and try something different or new.

Hi Frank you ask me what I was using for a tail piece on the resonator but some how I managed to delete you all together (very rude of me) anyway I used stainless and have reshaped it to fancy it up also put in some post to give it more strength with a timber ring around the hole as well so fingers X it should stay together. I will go and have a look at all your stuff now so hope to catch up again Baz :-)
