"Kool, I build something very similar. I use an 18.5” & 19.5” scale Pentatonic & Diatonic Fret layouts for my 1 stringers, they come out to be 24” in total length. Great minds think alike :D"

Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
Straight from Ted Crocker himself
What instruments are you building or playing?
I build lots of one stringers as well as 3 stringer cbg’s

In the beginning...

  My 1st guitar was a Classical guitar Neck & Bridge with only 3 strings, screwed to a Hava-Tampa cigar box, with the inspiration of Bo Diddley & so many others. Damn, I thought I was on the way to fame & fortune! Turns out, that guitar was more infamous than famous, fell apart in a matter of a few months. What does a 14 year old know about building guitars?        

  Looking back on that experience & the lack of knowledge available to me at the time, makes me glad there are places like this. Places where people of different ages & backgrounds can come together & give guidance to all things handmade....

Could be, the name sounds vaguely familiar. Were we in high school or the Navy together?

BTW, the profile pic is me, it's just 47 years ago in the South China Sea in the middle of a war...
