"Hi, also you may need a hole in the top bigger than the bridge so that the edge of the hole clears the top of the bridge. This will look a bit messy. CBJs advice is good, how often do you plan to lift the top anyway? Taff"

"If you are using a "hardtail bridge" it's basically a cut down version of a solidbody electric "Stratocaster" type bridge, so it is  designed to be mounted on a solid body. That's the way to do it. If you are using…"

"Hi Greg, have a pic of the box in question? On the ones I've made with hardtails, I mounted the neck to the lid and the bridge screws go through the lid and into "wings" glued to the neck."

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I am hoping I will be able to learn to play the three string CBG. I have tried to learn a six string but did not have the time to commit. I have a pretty good "low end" wood working shop with tools that were my fathers. I find the skills required for makin CBGs is perfect for my 8th grade wood shop education. I can only improve with each build. I have a diddly bow in the queue hopefully I will be able to play the one string.
