The splices for the 4 necks are all cut and planed, ready to glue today.

A new project on the bench, 4 cigar box guitars. All of the same dimensions, 25" scale length, same size bodies, all 5 splices neck maple / mahogany / oak. The body woods will vary, I have lined up some walnut, mahogany, purple heart and oak. All to be 3 strings, probably 2 resonators and all will have a pick up on the neck position. Neck through and strings through body, medium frets "not sure about how many as yet". It's my first time on this kind of instrument. I very much look forward to this :)
The ones of you who knows me are aware of my policy of keeping away from straight up copies. Nevertheless a year or so ago I've agreed to build 3 Klein headless guitar copies to be built one at the time with no finish or electrics. I've now began work on the last of them. Pics to follow
