First I bought one off EBay
Then bought a kit, built it , modified it.
Now this afternoon completed my 1st build from scratch.
AND IT WORKS
3 string fretless with a piezo pickup , sounds great.
Need a couple of mods I recon like a wider piece of threaded bolt for the bridge
and possibly slightly thinner.
Strings at the nut are perfect off the fretboard but rise up a bit towards the bridge.
Apart from that , very pleased.
Run the neck stick thru' the tin, don't leave a gap between the underside of the top of the tin and the neckstick - job's a good 'un.
Could you enlarge on that a bit please.
Where do I cut the gap for the stick ?
Here is an old thread with a picture of the inside of a cookie tin guitar which Diane in Chicago had made http://www.cigarboxnation.com/forum/topics/cookie-tin
and from the photo archives the inside of some cookie tin builds
There are old threads on the forums but the search facility is playing up at the moment.
(Building one is on my to do list but I keep getting distracted by other project ideas :o) )
Thanks for all of that.
Not looking to do a Round tin, use fruit bowls for my round projects.
Will be on the lookout for an oblong tin for my first attempt..
Still not quite sure which to use as the top, the bottom of the tin or the lid.
