Hey Hard luck Chuck, good to hear from you. That box I used is really old cedar, I was afraid of cracking the top so opted for side holes. Been trying to learn fretting on some scrap walnut, not getting the hang of it very well. I have medium creature and a saw from CB gitty, hard to get the frets tight. Need more practice. I want my next box to be fretted.

Hey Chuck! Thanks! I really enjoy the challenge of working with as much recycled/repurposed stuff as I can. It slows things down and adds to the work load, but the results are usually pretty fun. I'm down here in Monmouth now, I see you are in Clackamas? Do you build?

Hi Chuck, I have been meaning to do a short instructional music video, would you rather see 3 or 6 string guitar?

Very cool video of Henry playing Chuck! My old band Mudpuppy Blues Duo has played several shows with them (: Small world. Nice footage of the solo show!
