The video is viewable! Glen was going to town on his slide!!! I ask about the unplugged properties because I have been trying to build better instruments for a setting where having everyone plug in would be a disaster. I have found the Uncle Crow style build with a flying bridge on the bottom of the box has given me the best results, but I’m always open other approaches. It is also a super easy build. Thanks AGP.

Doug Thorsvik Please tell me if the Glen Watt Quick Pickin' Canjo file is viewable ???

"Thanks Doug", Unfortunately the unplugged volume is pretty low, and needs to be plugged into an Amp or Miked through a Speaker set up.

The original idea for this build came from a Glen Watt Build and Demo on the Cigar Box Nation some years back. :-)

Cool guitar! I’m curious AGP, what is the unplugged volume with the open can body? Do you have to plug it in to get a reasonable level and good tone?
