I'm baaaaack for a bit. Some might remember me, I've been gone quite some tims.
Long story short, I moved from CBG's to making full size guitars, mostly T-style. Made about 15-20 of them, even sold 3. I switched because my cbg skillset had sort of plateaued.
My build designs are still influenced on some by the cbg world, this experiment is one of them.
I'm building a reso-Tele. Paint can lid, floating brass bridge, semi-hollow, etc., you'll get it from the pix.
Problem is I have no idea how to put the reso stuff together......Help!
P.S., the hardboard guard is a template, not the real guard.
Hi James, on the last reso I built I was not happy with the acoustic sound so I too experimented, I'll show a few pics of my journey. No real advice from my findings that would help, I don't think, but you may get some ideas.
All the different setups worked, as would the one you show, I also used that idea with a Tunamatic type bridge.
Is that a straight claw type tailpiece on the box? I think the sproket looks cool...
Ye4ah, I think that's what I have...
