"Practice makes perfect. Also makes more scrap. Haha The color lines is a great suggestion. The round blades can also lead you off the path of the line quicker, so there's that. Some things seem to be a better idea, til they aren't."

Rubbish demo of a double 8 string lapsteel guitar.

"I would get some 12 string sets and use what you need from them, save the rest for CBG's. As far as tuning goes, I would tun one to G and the other to D or A for some blues."
