"Hi Jason, Very nice looking instrument. I am planning to make a resonator uke. Please tell me about the one pictured here. What is the resonator disk/top made of and what does it look like inside? What is the bridge setting…"
"I'm gearing up to attempt my first build and yours is similar to what I want to do. I have a few questions. What did you use as the biscuit/ bridge? I intend to order a cone from Old Lowe also. What are the dimensions of your box> Also, have…"

"Hey Jason. Please tell me how to build a resonator. I started a discussion on this , but not too much response yet. Do you have any pics of the inside and resonator. It really looks great. What is the scale…"
Welcome aboard, Jason! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBU, CBB, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).
Up in the Free Resources menu at the top, you will see a number of plans for building and playing cigar box guitars/ukuleles/banjos/dulcimers/violins. I encourage you to download any of the plans, take a look at them, and ask questions from there. Also our site is VERY searchable. I bet you your questions have already been asked, so take a few moments and look around.
