    1 Brickhouse 1 Outhouse

    Latest cigar box guitars, well that's half right...Don't know where my head was at laying out the 6 string, strings are way too close for these fat fingers{1&5/8" at the nut}...should look nice hanging on the wall

    No sound clips of either, sorry but the enthusiasm is just not quite there >.......

    Couple of very nice looking ones, Ken. I like what you did with the tuning pegs also. I have a red Brick House box that is destined for a ukulele. Looks like I am in the ukulele business for a while. My son informed me there are three uke boxes headed to my mail box. I'm trying to get him to order some wood for necks and such also. I gave him measurements for each board a little inflated. Enough to make a least three necks fro each, I mean I should get something out of the deal...

    BTW, I really like the positioning of the tuning pegs, too. You're giving the strings a relatively straight shot over the nut. That's a good thing.

    And your various embellishments (particularly the bridges and pickup rings) look sweet, too.

    Totally agree with Vaughn. Besides on a cigar box guitar, you should just be mashing your fingers around anyway. Or do like vaughn suggested and make it a slider!
