This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?
I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.
A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.
I picked this one up 2 days ago
That's a nice box. Looks rugged and strong.
Don't know what my silverware box is made of. It's light, so I'm thinking it's made of Balsa Wood. Hope it ends up sounding decent. I hate going through the trouble of building a git to only get a dud, happens sometimes.
I never came across a dud. but im sure its possible. the box walls are 3/8 and lid and bottom is 3/16.
Freebies are always nice, god luck on your build. If you don't do a thread on it, post a pic or 2 here so we can see it.
I took apart the 1st CBG I made, a bass diddley bow, and am refurbing the heck out of it. The only thing from the first one is going to be the pick axe handle neck, pots and jack.
after refurb it'll be 30" scale, with a 14k alnico humbucker in the far neck postition. Tuner from my Bronco, long narrow Undercrown box. Should have it redone in a couple days, though I am thinking about sanding and staining it.
That looks like it'll make a good Uke. I'm thinking about a Mando build in the future.
14k in the neck position should supply a lot of Bass.
Sounds like a big rebuild. Want a finished pic of that Sean.
