"So do I fit my cone to my box first and then cut out for my neck? ( paper draft first...) And make tge distance from nut to bridge 3mm longer? :)"

Moritz Voegeli replied to Rob's discussion Setting out from the beginning - Resonator 6 String
"Start with a draft on paper with the exact measures, place the cone first, add the neck, with nut to bridge twice the distance nut to 12th fret + 3mm or 0.12" added."
