First time making 1 and 2 string canjo's, have no idea if they're good, bad, or just what they are, I've never played them before, heard a few on here and youtube, kinda winged it on both, each are a little different other than the string count, both are 25-1/2in scale, diatonic, wood burned in fretless marks, every string tune to a G/g, makes noise, thought they'd be a little louder, going to make a few slides next for these and my other builds, then attempt to play them, may hang on wall, or sell if worth more than the pennies mounted on them, at least I know one is worth at least .02 cents and the other .01 cents LOL.

Let me know what you guys think, I'll try and figure out how to post a vid or 2 once I figure out how.
