What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Easy to make and provide lots of enjoyment personally. My friends and acquaintances also find them of great interest. I will make my next one with a shorter scale length than the 24.75 inches I have been using so far. I find this fret spacing/size a little difficult to master so I think I'll go for a 23.75 inch scale next time.
I have also made a few ukuleles, tenor and concert mainly.

scale length vs personal physical characteristics??

Posted on November 1, 2019 at 11:00pm 20 Comments

Because I found the scale length I used to make the guitars I have given up playing them as the neck and fret spacing was to long/wide for me.

Consequently I went for ukuleles which I find more playable and manageable. After trying the different sizes I like the tenor best, closely followed by the baritone.

I will do another guitar in the future possibly using the 23" scale length suggested to me...that makes it 4 inches longer than a baritone uke...so I am still not sure.…

You might want to contact the site administrator, scroll all the way down to the very bottom, they might be able to retrieve your forgotten password? Hope you get that figured out, cheers :)
