in the middle of a week off of work and a month long detox so I built this monster of Canjo.The tuning is Eee, the Bass is a 105 gauge E string and the Chugger is 10 and 46 gauges also tuned to e-e. Going to do some adjustments to the Chugger, the bridge needs to be raised so the strings don't hit the edge of the tin, but otherwise this thing is awesome. The paired Piezos sound great in the tin and the bass String isn't destroying my Mustang amp.What you guys think…See More

Two New Builds: The Teddy Bear and the Lunch Box

On Christmas Eve I was bored and Hungover so I finally built myself an Emoji Tin Chugger. Since this was to be my personal instrument and not something to sell later, I used a larger Emoji Tin, this one in particular is a lunch and I have built it so that I may still open and close the lid with ease for maintenance and kept the…See More

JP Lace Master replied to Tom T's discussion How many strings is best?
"I will admit that I love the E+e combo, little sparse, but very useable, but I've got to say that an AD Chugger is the best for 2 stringers"

JP Lace Master replied to Richard Dean's discussion 1 CBG, what tuning??
"For what you're learning GDG is a good place to be working from. I am also learning Bad to the Bone and Wild Thing and have found Open G very good for both. If I may suggest for Bad to the Bone, if you already know the Muddy Waters Mannish Boy…"

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."

JP Lace Master replied to Taffy Evans's discussion Making my biscuit tin CBG sound better
"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…"

"I'm liking the article, the EBE tuning looks interesting, I got a project on that involves the GBE strings, might be worth a try."

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
