I took a chance and built on an 80 yr old box. CBG ers know how risky errors can be so I measured to 3 decimal's.

Old boxes in my case usaly fail to be exelent players,i have more sucses whit Old Tin Cigar boxes,they give good vibrations and make a fine Build ! But this one does not look Old at all, but brand New, and a fine looking Build riminds me of Lynas our good Buddy!!

Such an awesome build.  I have a few antique wood cigar boxes (over 100 years) and some from around the same period you used.  I have not decided on a build plan for them yet.  Again, super cool build!

Looking great.  Love how the fret board markers compliment that great old vintage box.
