I'm trying to find a resonator cone and cover that's small enough for a 3 string cigar box guitar. I've seen a few on CB Gitty, but I can't find any in either the UK or Europe. Any ideas?

Elderly has Uke cones and smaller tri-cones in the under 6" category available. Here;s an example:

C.B Gitty will have them and also Paul Beard at beardguitars.com has them too.

Try Chickenbone John in the UK. He used to sell them at a very reasonable price.

Cheers lads. I'm having someone make me a 3 string CBG (as I mentioned in my OP), and I fancy having both a resonator and a hand wound pickup that I've seen on CBN. I quite fancied making my own, but I'm not sure my woodworking skills are up to the task.

Oh man, thanks for the Chickenbone John suggestion. I've just sent him a message.

He's only about 90 minutes drive from me, so I might see if he does any local workshops.
