attempt failed (which is okay, of course. You gotta try new stuff). I think I have landed on a good one, though.
I have been building tenor guitars for a while, now, and have a few under my belt. I like having four strings to play with, and the 23" scale seems to fit nicely with the size of a cigar box. I have been playing mostly tenors lately, since that is what I have been making, and since my friend St Wish (who is a real damn luthier and makes real damn instruments) made me a tenor a few months ago. I tune them Chicago style, so I am not playing them like a true tenor guitar, but that is only because I don't know how to play tenor guitar.

Good-sounding little box, I think, and it makes me want to play the blues a lot.
