Homemade Dobros

"It don't mean a thang, if it ain't got that clang!!!"We're discussing homemade dobro ideas.  From dog bowls to paint can lids and whatever else you can dream up...we wanna see it!  What do you use on your cigar box guitars to get that metal sound?  Do you have a technique that projects sound like a dobro? Let's hear it!  See More

Hi Jabes, i measured my Rickenbacher Electro. There's just 3/16 inch wider at the last fret mark from the nut width. They are not as tapered as a regular guitar. Wider string spacing is common also.
At 8:42pm on August 20, 2014, Dave Lynas said…
Hey Jabes, yes most all lap steels taper the fretboard. Not a lot but some. Also, the strings don't go all the way to the edge of the fretboard as you aren't reaching around the neck. That lets you see the string on the edge. Lap steel is very visual for me. I have to look at the neck and see the strings and fret markings.

No worries Jabes. I might consider it somewhere down the line. I'm sure we can work something out if you'd like me to make you another though! Rock on mate.
