"I have found that tins are great resonators, but they serve well for the electrics as well. as well as serving as great mounting points for everything needed, they work as a perfect faraday cage for any interference."

"I am aware of how it looks on that front and to some extent it is a little funny look at, doesn't change the fact that it is quite awesome. Can't do a sound clip, problems with mic and amp to laptop recording. I can say this, I'm not…"

"Its beautiful and can't wait for a sound-clip.  I was just being funny about the anatomical position of the neck entering the tin bwahaha."

"despite the body shape, it works rather nicely actually, its very playable and sounds very good, If you can see, the eyes have been drilled out and serve as sound holes, tiny body, surprising amount of noise."

"an egalitarian teddy bear, particularistic, ridged, and not flexible. Not fun, cannot see humor, and overall, unpleasant. (safe for work euphemisms, lol) sorry, sorry, sorry"

"I would be remiss in my duty if I were not to inform you that the teddy bears head is at the tail end of the guitar and currently has a hinge bolted onto it."

Two String project complete (also built a Diddley Bow)

For those who have followed my previous thread, I have built the 2 string Chugger using a Biscuit tin in the shape of a teddy bear (I know it sounds mad, but I am quite mad).Also I got bored afterwards and build a diddley bow out a small Danish cookie tin and now have 2 guitars.I will admit my building methods have not been the most effective with these builds due to my lack of a proper workshop, but overall I think they have come out ok.I will post pics soon.See More

JP Lace Master replied to JP Lace Master's discussion 2 String Project: Not sure what to call it
"makes sense, I must of missed that one. Definitely not calling it Fred. Bear Tar seems like one of the better options, but honestly, the naming of it will be down to the new owner once it is no longer mine."

Janis Wilson Hughes replied to JP Lace Master's discussion 2 String Project: Not sure what to call it
" When asked why he calls a 2 string cbg a chugger, Mr Speal responded "because I made it up. ;) Two strings give you a chugging rhythm instrument." It's not about chugging beer or anything. ;)  Here's the kind of stuff…"

Well, the one I have made is made of a Biscuit Tin, whether you can call that a Cigar Box guitar, I don't know, but the tone when played acoustically is beautiful
