so my wife showed me how to put pics on here. my son asked if we could use his old marker board for a fret board so i tried it out. i think it looks good, the only problem is figuring out the frets so you put the splice on a fret position. the others are of a hand-built pickup that i kinda put together with the help of google. pay no attention to the altoids tin guitar in the background, thats just a wingin it one. lol anyone know how many times i need to wrap the pickup? aka...how many yards…See More

I had to join the site so I could say thank you to everyone that has given any direction to me so far. Even at the local music shops here people look at me like I'm on fire when I say I've been building cigar box guitars. Thankfully I found this place. Once again I just want to say thanks to everyone. The info here has gotten me through three good builds so far. I will get the pictures up as soon as I can.LukeSee More
