Cutting through lacquer without cracks

I just picked up 12 more cigar boxes. A few of them are lacquered. Any tips on cutting them to accept the neck without causing the lacquer to crack?

Cheats for Busking

Posted on June 8, 2016 at 6:27pm 4 Comments

A question for all y'all buskers out there? How tacky is it to have a cheat sheet with chords/lyrics when you are busking. I am still building my set list but I could play a bunch more songs if I had cheat sheets until I memorize them. 

What are your thoughts on this?

Jammin with the fam!

This weekend the family and I got together and played guitar, sang and played games. It was a great time. We recorded one of the songs. It was recorded on a phone and i am a bit pitchy in parts but it was a lot of fun. Enjoy!

Tuner upgrade

Posted on March 25, 2016 at 4:01pm 2 Comments

Hey, I have been using the CB Gitty economy tuners for a while now and they work well enough but I want to upgrade a little. Do any of you have experience with some of his other tuners that are a little more high end?

All Wood Box Fake Out

Posted on March 17, 2016 at 1:36pm 15 Comments

I have a cigar box that "appeared" to be solid wood. The top looks like a glossy natural oak. When I drilled the sound holes, it looks like the oak is only a thin veneer and the rest is mdf. The holes are beautiful but I am concerned with how it is going to sound. What are your thoughts?
