Thanks, Chris.  How are things with you, staying warm in AZ?  I'm doing well and having the time of my life building and playing my 'little' guitars.  Stay well.  Jess

Hi Chris, Things are well for me. I got a cbg near completion (my 10th) but have been slow at getting to it. Lately, I've been getting boxes at "Total Wine & More" store, The sell cigars and sell paper clad boxes for $0.75 and all wood for $1.50. I have about 20...waiting to be built!  Good to hear from ya!

Hey Chris, I'd be more than happy to answer your questions. I too found it frustrating finding out how to build my resonators. By the way, that's why I got into this cigar box guitar stuff,after shopping around for (real) resonator guitars. The one I wanted, a National tri-cone, nickel plated blues machine, about $3,500 caused me to decide to build my own, and I am sooo glad I did. I intend to sell my creations soon and am working hard at making that happen. Here's a link to find cones and coverplates and biscuits. http://www.republicguitars.com/partsaccessories.html

If you go to e-bay you can find chicken feeders, get the one that has the flat top so you can cut it out for biscuit/bridge, their about $5.99 + shipping. Keep in mind you'll have to angle the neck so you can get the strings to clear the chicken feeder, refer to my pictures and if you want I can post more detailed pics. The reso cone sits on a lip of a wooden ring, which I attach to the through piece of the neck. It all takes careful planing, on my "chicken head" reso I actually drew out the guitar full scale side view, it's not easy otherwise every joker would be making them. Hope this helps, let me know how your doin'.
