jipp Posted July 27, 2006 Report Share Posted July 27, 2006 (edited) Hi, im in the process of building a cigarbox guitar. I built my own box perse now im ready to move onto the neck. Now the size of a box, I think it would funky with a full size neck. Im thinking 17 frets with a fender scale would work well. so can i just copy the locations that are on my strat and cut off the rest. adn will it still be in tune? or does this screw up the key. im not sure how the scale effects they key so i have no idea how the math works. also, do i have to run the neck all the way through, or can i do like a acoustic neck joint, and xbrace the box? Im not postive what im gonna do for frets yet, im getting just burn them in for now since this thing is made from scrap wood. Im gonna make my own bridge so i dont think i need to worry about setting neck at a few degrees. Thanks for any help, ill start on the neck tomorow if i have time. chris. Guess i should also mention this is gonna be a 4 string, and im gonna try to make it eletric. wind my own pup and stuff.
