"Martin, I haven't done it on a guitar yet, but I have transferred images to other projects using waxed paper and a laserjet printer. I've only done it in black and white, assume you could do it in color too. I carefully tape waxed paper to…"

"I just shamelessly followed strumstick plans on the web (sort of at least).  The neck was cut like a tuning fork so the bottom could be spread out to form the sides of the body. I actually made the body way too big, so several frets are…"

"Finally got a few hours to get one of my benches cleaned off and organized - far too many months overdue. Now how long can I keep it that way?"

"I know absolutely nothing about pickups, beyond the basic differences between a piezo and a magnetic pickup. What is going on with a "scatterwound" that makes it behave differently?"

"Where are you located Ray? I found mine recently at a flea market for about $3. Saw many that were more expensive but this one fit the need."

MadGomer replied to Southern Ray's discussion Missed the Mark On Zero Fret
"Agreed, I was only suggesting this as a way to toughen up the string grooves on a wooden nut, not for the neck itself. I used a walnut nut and saddle on my very first CBG build and it is holding up fine, but it's strung up with wound strings,…"

MadGomer replied to Southern Ray's discussion Missed the Mark On Zero Fret
"What about the baking soda and superglue trick to create a hard surface for the strings to ride on? Thinking you could file oversized grooves in the mahogany, fill with CA/soda, then clean it up with a file and recut string grooves in the hard stuff."

MadGomer replied to declan foley's discussion Canjo tuning in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"Start by confirming that your scale length is correct for the fret spacing you used. Measure from the point of contact between the string and "nut" and the point of contact with the bridge. If that's what you intended, then start…"
