UJ: thanx. I like how your imagination builds an old blues-scenario around peoples' relic-looking builds!
I agree with you T-Gripped! Those Vintage boxes just have a look that set them apart. Thanks for the details on strings and tuning.
You nailed it. Looks like it should be in the and of a bo' sitting in the open door of a Morton Salt box car. He's got a beat up-old satchel in the other hand and he's waiting for the train to slow a little more so he can get off.
Thanx Doug. I used the 'Hobo Fiddle' set from CB Gitty and tuned it GDg.
I was given several very small vintage boxes... too small for conventional builds but too pretty not to use
Very cool T-Gripped! Nice vintage box. Which nylon strings are you using and how is it tuned?
