hi,

i've made about 20 or so cbg style guitar's but not with a cigar box, they're too expensive here in England, i've used fishing box's/wine box's/35mm slide box's etc etc, heard some dulcimer's on youtube and i really like the sound of them so i've decided to make a dulcimer kind of thing, i'm just gathering the part's at the moment, i'm using two broken barometer's for the body, the green part is onyx,

i want to make a 4-string but i need to know how far apart the two high string's are from each other, there'll be a few more question's i'm sure but one thing at a time,

thank's,
