Thank you Richard ! its great to hear how many like the little exsta to the simplest of things!  and you as a good observer ! go for the little details! and ofcourse you have to be funky when have limitations cosé then you go the exstra mile, cosé its like a invitation to do so ( in my opinion) yep after playing it a while it got a bit to much on the resonating ,so i popped the lid a fjew exstra pop's so that the sound stay's Bassy & high,i think because the tin is soled in the wood base, the tone exspans from the tin in the wood, and if you observe the back side you see i have cut stw slots for the sound to leave the casing!  a bit like a tin in a box , bit diverend! your to kind !Thank you be reading you Greeeeettssszz A.D.

Thanks Danny its got to do whit tuning and string lenght from nut to bridge the fagiolet tones and how you mark your positions if you have that you go and sit down whit the thing and have your way around if you like to be sure where you are get a gromatic tuner and see how your position on the string registers and mark as shown ! maybee now you have a handle on how to go about!? greeeeeettssszz to ye A.D.

Yep Dave is that not amasing ! after playing it a while the lid on the box started to resonate a bit to much so i drilled a fjew more holes in the lid and poped the lid tight, so it stopped ,i usaly like the exstra rezzo for effect but this one i like to keep clean in the sence you have the bass and the high B string to do the melody on, Yep Harmony flows, hope this helps sales for you! Thanks again Dave ! like they say Your the Man !!

Thanks Dennis ,Its a little more work then usual but its rewourding!  a dragon is allmost simular , i just glued a fjew pieces from the left over necks(a brick a day builds a house in a week!)together and the band saw did the rest. and for inspiration you got loads of pictures out there to get inspired by, so whats holding you back dennis? was loki that big a carver ?

thanks James !its a fun one to play you got a bass string to pound away on and a high B string to slide and melody on and when you strike them both you get harmony !simple but effectif !
