resonator cigar box guitar

Just because I'm really "into" resonator guitars at the moment I am thinking my next CBG might be an attempt at one. Of course it won't have the proper aluminium cone but something else that might act as a sort of loudspeaker which is what the reso does. I will have to start scouting for something suitable. Kepp you informed when I do.

Well let me know when you come up with something! because I'm working on CBG resonator ideas too. I want to build something before x-mass so I can take it on my plane flight. I think I saw something online once where a guy used an empty chicken pot-pie tin.

Had to put this one on hold for a while due to other commitments. Don't know if you can pick up this URL You may need to be logged into yahoo and subscribe to the group but there's some good pictures of a resonator CBG here.

Found this innovative idea too. I plan on building one soon. I have a 6 string acoustic on the bench now. Plus since I've been reading your blog I also have started on a 3 string frettless for slid

Unfortunately my reso project hasn't got off the ground yet. Too many irons in the fire.
