I was just wondering, if anyone has done any enhansments to this project by adding some DIY effects to the guitar itself.
Maybe adding a distortion filter to the internals.
I’ll have to add this to the list.
Also, be sure to check out John Parkâ€™s banjo construction on Make: television, and Ed Vogelâ€™s incredible combo, including the Display Case Bass. http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2009/03/maker_workshop_cigar_box_guitar_on.html

Cool! I’ve got scheme for building such guitar! :)
In the meanwhile, I suggest you check out my webcam guitar lessons program. I feel that you or anybody interested could benefit a lot from it :)
