"Resofiddle' #158

"Thank You!  I've made a dozen or so of these with this design. I've since improved them by having them cut out with a water jet and nickel plated.  They are expensive, but well worth it.  Best, Matty B"

Hi Matty --

I've been lurking these forums for a while now and am impressed by your cigfiddles. I've been building and repairing electric guitars and basses for almost 6 years and just recently got into cigar box instruments (currently working on a cigar box mandolin and have built one 3-string guitar in the past). I had a couple of questions about your cigfiddles, if you don't mind me asking: First, do they have a truss rod? I know a lot of CBGs don't as the string tension is usually lower than a conventional acoustic guitar, but your necks aren't just an oak 1x2 so I couldn't help but wonder. Secondly, what kind of scale do you use for your cigfiddles?

Thanks!

-- Trevor

Matty, I left you a voice mail yesterday to 1) Offer congrats! and 2) to give you a heads up that you have a bad picture link on the Baratto Cigfiddles page on your site.  

BTW, you got a mention in yesterday's Esquire Magazine article What You Need to Know About the Historic Paul McCartney-Nirvana Show.

Also the L.A. Times, which links to the page with the missing pic.

Also mentioned in In the NewsThe Cavan Project & more.

A shame about that missing photo...

I'd love to see your shop and meet you if I get a chance to go to Hollywood. Awesome stuff.
