Wow, you’re a busy guy!

@clinton Clinton I love seeing your work, you are a true craftsman/carpenter/luthier etc. 

Im interested in making some cigar box type instruments, they are my favourite right now. I have never made one before but want to get started. What scale lengths are they? Are there different scale lengths? Do they have truss rods? Oh, so many questions! Sorry.

Thanks @Boo. I started out with cigar box style ukuleles and 4 string. I found that the lowest you can go with sufficient string tension on top 4 steel string would be 20 1/4 scale and all 6 steel string at 22 3/4. Suggested higher gauge strings suits it well.
