I'm realllly digging the mandolin! I got some Aquila strings for ukes tuned GDAE, but the E string was brittle and snapped 3 times to the point that its now too short. I'm definitely going to be looking out for a mandolin in the near future :)

thanks fellers...

they're alot of fun to make. They've come along way and still have a ways to go, but I think I'm approaching the limit of cigar box building. There are of course things I 'could' do, but not necessarily things I want to...or things that I cant do in the realm of traditional building.

Other than making a banjo, and maybe branching out into some fingerboard inlay...I think I'm about tap'd out on inspiration. Anyone have any 'interest-sparking' ideas on what can be done or what they'd like to see?

The baritone sounds really nice. The Cohiba cigars are pretty good too.

thanks man, I couldnt really tell you about the cigars. They're too expensive :) I did have one once, but it was pretty strong
