"Hi Taff, thank you kindly. the nut is glued into place and sits in a lowered ridge on the neck, but I guess it can be removed to shorten the scale. I lengthen the scale by just moving the bridge back nearer the tailpiece, the bridge is held down…"

Finally finished: 6 String Broom handle Cigar Box

you guys have heard me talk about this thing already, so I'll just give the new details of the finished project.I sprayed the body and the neck itself and it made the wood and the even the ply itself come up very nicely, especially the top lid, it looks beautiful. I had some trouble with the nut and eventually had to swap it for a rather fat bolt, it works, but I would of preferred an actual nut for this. once I had it together I had some trouble with the electrics, the ground and the hot kept…See More

6 String Broom Handle Cigar Box

had an unexpected week off so I thought I'd get it done before winter comes. still got one or 2 things left to do, but this is what I got done so far. just need to round off the edges and corners, spray the body in a lot of clear lacquer, mount the nut and jack plate and string it up. I made the box, myself, the top is 3/4 inch ply the sides are some thick pieces of pine and the back lid is 1/2 inch ply, which has hinges and catches. I like to get into the bodies, makes for easier…See More

"I'd layout the neck with the box, measure out your desired scale length, then you'll have an idea where the bridge goes.   Then you may need to tweak the neck placement in the box (ie- longer or shorter neck tail length) to get…"

"Thank you everyone for your advice and opinions on this and also thank you for telling me how to actually post using the HTML, that is very helpful. I'm gonna go with the shorter tailpiece, it just makes more sense and it looks better.…"

Well, the one I have made is made of a Biscuit Tin, whether you can call that a Cigar Box guitar, I don't know, but the tone when played acoustically is beautiful
