Still learning how to do this. Can you spot my mistake besides having the box upside down?

Okay, maybe it is not as obvious as I thought it would be to all you seasoned veterans of Cigar Box Guitars, but I used a 4 pole pickup.  It puts out the four middle strings just fine, but can't pick up the two E strings very well.  Live and learn, and I will tear it apart and install a different one in time.

Did not even notice the box until you pointed it out.  Ah, in this pic, the loop doe not look so much in the way.

No that's not a mistake, that's the best I can do.
