"Shane has a short video somewhere-here-abouts where he recommends gluing on some more wood to the sides of the neck where you are going to notch for the mag pickup, so the neck doesn't get too weakened."

I received an email from CigarBox Nation.... re you were wondering how to join the Canadian Group. I think by the looks of it that you are already a member but if not, you just click on the Canadian group and follow the links. Where are you located? I am in Cape Breton and have been building strumsticks for the past few years but am now switching over to Cigar Box Guitars. So far have built 2 but am planning to build my next one with a shorter scale.
