"May be an intonation problem. Check nut is correctly placed. Check distance of bridge to 12 fret is a smidge longer than the distance from the nut to the 12th fret."

De-Christmassing tins

After Christmas I finished up with a whole bunch of chocolate and cookie tins covered in pictures of Santa Claus, Snow men and Christmas messages. The local goodwill stores are also filling up with a few.  Now I got no beef with Santa (he and I go back a long way) but Christmas themed musical instruments are a hard sell any time between December 27 and Halloween. Does anybody have any great ideas how to strip down, jazz up, de-Christmassify or otherwise re-purpose these tins without detempering…See More

Real good job on that banjo uke Titch! Hope to hear how she sounds. All the ones I've made with that pete plastic are surprisingly loud!

Hey Titch,

I just watched all your video. Which is a major feat due to my limited attention span.

All your builds are very clever and you play and sing well too.

Keep building and posting
