    Thanks. It's my favorite build so far. A Frankenstein experiment that turned out really well. Been putting what I learned with this one into my current projects.

    wharf rat, things are going good here. Glad to hear that you are feeling better.
    Son has informed me he wants to build a diddley bo. I turned him onto this link and it sparked his interest. The guy in the video is a historian and a hell of a good blues musician and singer. Sonster wants to do this over Thanksgiving break from school, sounds like it should be fun. Towards the end of this video, the guy also does some playing on a 3 string CBG. His name is Scott Ainslie.

    Sweet!! Mr. Ainslie sounds pretty cool. Bo's are so much fun and really straight forward to build.
    I have those same two boxes if sonster wants them. Up to my knees in boxes of all sorts. Have the black one without the red "New Size" on it too. Trimmed with gold hardware they usually look and sound really good.
    Let me know.

    Thank you sir. Actually received this box from frequentflier. It was a little prettier before I got a hold of it.

    Time to start playing again.
