Thanks Jules,
Doesn’t sound great yet this was my first attempt. I made a raised profile for the frets. Next time i will make a slot for real frets to slide in and also play with different materials.

Well, i think it’s cool to build one from scratch…before long you’ll be a luthier. :wink:

Outstanding! I wonder if it would sound better if you used one of the tone woods like Indian rosewood.
