Haven't made a resonator yet -- I've got a UKE body that I've stripped the top off and made into a 'CBG' with a  grill that looks like a resonator...figured I'd see what it sounds like just as an acoustic port first...I found a little thin stainless  medical or restaurant dish that sounds pingy as hell, but thought that might just play up one frequency...will have to experiment with random items as resonators...--- you may be able to buy an actual one --- some tiny little thing that might not cost too much....as for frets...I have zero intention of doing my own frets  yet...tough enough getting them done as is......I've been just making these as slide guitars with fret markers --- playing straigh 3-string  has actually taught me a ton with slide trying to 'fret' melodies on individual strings...  will have more to post soon...  almost there with the UKE rebuild  ET

hey, for no particular reason sometimes when i hit the CBG comment link that comes in my mail, it takes me to a page that doesn't have your comment showing...so I'm replying here...

 

The action was crap on my first when I strung it up.  But I then just made the nut taller and the bridge lower and BAM it was a different instrument instantly. Really - it went from crap sounding and not a good feel to being perfect. So just keep noodling around with the nut and bridge and you'll hit a sweet spot. 

 

Post photos when you're done!  peace,  ET
