JP Lace Master replied to Tom T's discussion How many strings is best?
"with the exception of the 4 string, I've tried them all at some time or another, but the 2 stringer has got to be the best or at the least the most fun. The string combinations alone make it awesome for experimentation."

"I like your story, a tissue box guitar, that's where I started and then went into my grandfathers work shop to build with him, he is gone from me now, but I honour him by keep building."

JP Lace Master replied to Taffy Evans's discussion Making my biscuit tin CBG sound better
"I'm inclined to agree that the Tin lid is an important part of the sound, much in the same manner as a license plate guitar, it is the sound board, but the tin that makes up the body is equally important to the sound as the metal of the tin…"

JP Lace Master replied to Ducati Scotty's discussion Shipping a CBG
"The size of the box is one thing and you are right, making it smaller is the best option, but tell me what is going on with the weight of you CBG, I've got solid body 6 strings that weigh less than that? Surely a CBG is usually lighter than…"

"It is GDG dropped a full step down, use it for any song in G that you find more comfortable to sing with FCF. (just like using a capo in the opposite direction). One of my bands did everything in Eb standard tuning, half step down, for some reason…"

"Got to agree Nigel's vids are good. In terms of the strings, I'm using the ADG strings from a set of Ernie Balls electric 10's and I gotta say the sound I am getting from the Tin body is beautiful. The key doesn't worry…"

John Sawyer replied to JP Lace Master's discussion What can you guys tell me about FCf tuning
"I've used EBe, FCf, GDg, DAd...  They're all workable... if you're singing, you might find a different key better matches your voice or a particular song... When I build Electrics, the thinner strings have less tension... I…"

Doesn't seem like a weird tuning, FCf, just open G tuned down.can you guys tell me anything about it and suggest what else I can use it for?See More

I drilled out 10 sound holes and it sounds great with the 85 gauge A string on…See More

JP Lace Master replied to Bryan's discussion Tin Diddley Bow
"Hello Bryan, lets start with the dowel rod neck. a 1 inch Dia will just about do it, but may I suggest a 1 1/8, more space for the machine head. Speaking of the machine head, make sure you drill the hole for it carefully, otherwise you will find…"

Brendan deVallance replied to JP Lace Master's discussion What gauge Fretwire?
"I'd go with medium which is what I usually do. Not too wide, not too skinny, just right. But I would also add its good to purchase a good saw that puts the right width slot to fit the tang of the frets. —B"
