i found this la flor dominicana box that just screams guitar by its shape and size. Ever seen a cbg made from one? Good tone? The bottom measures 17 1/4 by 11 1/4 by 15/16s thick. I have never seen one before but the size an especialy the shape sure make it look like it was meant to be played.

Sorry that was supposed to read 1 and 15/16s thick ( suppose i could just call it 2” eh?

Was there supposed to be a pic? Seems like the right shape. At 2" it should sound like a slimline steelstring. Probably will sound better than smaller boxes. The span of 17 inches might be helped with bracing though if going for more than just a couple strings.

The pic is on my first post and seems to be working, i will post here again i guess i didnt give all the dimensions so the top is the same as the sides at 11 1/4” so it is a triangle with the top cut flat.  Sure would like to find more of these. 


Looks like a box for a dual neck guitar to me

Exactly what I was thinking.

put a stick through neck in that box and it will look like an AXE..lol

could be an idea for a theme build??

 Funny I didnt think I had ever seen one but today I found I think three of them in that book by,...Dave sutton? The one that is mostly just pics of different cbg one is a harp / guitar double neck with some very nice woodwork.
