    During my Brotherhood Build I needed to test my stain plans plus wanted to test Rich's 4 string C6 invention (plus test the 4 with the eye on a future 8, the Redemption Build?) Here is picture proof ;)

    As you might see, the point is a hollow neck, the fretmarkers being only holes :D

    Heh, I built a couple of cigar box guitars for my neighbor this summer. It was a nice diversion from my brotherhood build and "blew out the cobwebs" that had developed from focusing on one project for too long. I say good on you!

    Well, the moral of the story is with biscuit the reso cone needs one inch clearance but only has 1/2". I cut maple spacers and it cleared and looked good :), but took ALL the acoustic tone from the cone :(. I am adding a flatbox bucker but not depending on it. For now it plays better than I do :p

    Tuned upper register, a,c,e, g of C6 it's actually fairly easy to find certain chords. Pretty cool
