What's good everyone?

Wondering how to attach a neck to a cigar box..not a handmade neck I know how to do that..my neck is from an electric guitar neck my brother gave me. I took the guitar apart so I can make a 6 string CBG.

Anyone have any suggestions or photos on how to attach the neck?

Any info would be helpful.

I make them as a solid body electric guitar inside a cigar box.

I cut a piece of pine 2x4 to the length of the inside of the box and ran some 3-inch drywall screws through the box side and into the ends of the board. I screwed the neck onto the board. Very sturdy, and actually put the balance point of the guitar at the strap button.

I did a couple with a Block down the middle like a semi hollow body. It would attach like Teds But has hollow chambers on both sides.

That is exactly what I did on mine.

If you do a quick search in the picture gallery you can see how other people are making theirs.  There is a recent one that shows the inside, very similar how I did mine.
