New to Cigar Box Nation.  Been building for about six months now, and am nearly completed with guitar # 7.

Here's a shot of #1, a cigar box with a 36 Connecticut license plate, walnut neck, and piezos under the bridge and behind the plate.  Sounds good.  Now in the hands of my wingman from 2003 Iraq.

Fellow Carolinians... I have got a big problem with my first build.  I keep coming back to it, thinking I can fix it (but only make it worse).  Anyone here know a thing or two more than me live in, or close to Gastonia who might be willing to take a look and tell me what I am doing wrong?  

Here's the low down in a discussion I posted this morning...http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/class101/forum/topics/somewhat-....  I seriously don't think it's my fret spacing and has to be something else.
