Thanks, I hear you! I actually looked around for the Lace Matchbox to check prices!  C. B. Gritty is out of supply, Amazon same. Still can buy direct from Lace! Ebay UK I believe had one, you might check out. Agreed, Greece ??? I’m thinking about putting one on Uncle’s Partagas, make it a West Coast Electra jammer ha! Thanks A.D! I noticed  during my web surfing, more like web fumbling, your right, age catches you if you don’t catch it, one builder here bought a bunch of the Lace pickups, making deluxe CBGs with em!

Hi Andries. Ya, who knows. But it looks good either way. We use one as a wedge to keep our door closed at the garden. I always keep it up like a cup. :*)

The tube amp?  No, I didn't build that.  I found it while we were cleaning stuff out of a closet in my church.  I got bold and asked, "Do we still need this?  Can I have it?"  It's OLD; I don't remember the brand/make.  I'm certain the factory that built it (Chicago, IL) is long gone.  I brought it to my guitar repair guy who has a guy who restores and repairs amps, speakers and other electronics.  It SCREAMS!!  I play it in church mostly, so I have to keep it turned WAY DOWN.  Thanks, friend.

Thanks Andries, that heart shape design is called a "trailing heart".  I first found this back in the 70s, I found a book on how to build an Appalachian mountain dulcimer, can't remember the title or the author.  Having never built an instrument, I went ahead.  Came out nice, my granddaughter now owns it.  The author was a big fan of that trailing heart design, I also like it.  Not necessarily my signature design, I like it and will use it again, but anybody else is welcome to it.  I also use what I call a "drunken diamond" as seen on my first 3-string build, also on a friends.  Thanks for the comment!

Nope can't cut the cone down, it's the top is crushed in.

Glad it arrived safe Andries. And fit! Yahoo! Happy Independence Day. ... Dave

Cool matchbook Andries. : )

I got the aluminum cone and it's deformed now, it's just too thin for the steel strings so I'm going to get rid of it and replace it with a 1mm sheet of carbon fiber. I'll let you know how the experiment turns out.

At 5:10pm on July 3, 2018, Dave Lynas said…

Hi Andries. It should come soon. It was. Sent it two weeks ago. .. Dave

At 7:52pm on July 2, 2018, Korrigan said…

Thanks Andries! I got the reso kit here:

http://www.mrwsinstruments.com/resonator-parts/

But it's made for ukulele and this evening I discovered that the cone is collapsing under the tension of the strings (about 60lbs). Oh well, the cover still looks cool and I'll come up with something sturdier for a resonator.

You are welcome Andries. It was fun to twang with the birds at the garden.
