THANKS TO DAZEDLEMONPIE, the following fret measurements have been transcribed for us, and i've copied and pasted them here:
"i just written down all the fret measurement from part 5 of the video, I thought I would share it with those interested in building one.
The following are based on scale length of 59cm
59cm multiply .9439 (or any other scale length) equals your first fret location
It should be marked as follows:
3- 49.6cm 0
5- 44.2cm 0
10--33.1cm 0 (G chord)

PLAYING THE CIGAR BOX GUITAR : COLLECTIVE SOUL - "SHINE"
That's some good thinking. I have a box that I can't bring myself to ruin the top of. I've been putting off a build on it. This gives me some ideas for it.
Wow Crow, those are great and I love you rendition of Shine. I think I will try one of these just to see if I can learn to play that on it!! Looks like a blast and that thing sounds awesome!
