Having more fun with a Moon Pie tin box that I found at the local Tractor Supply last week.
This one is made for one of my two great nieces. She is only five years old, so I don't think she will be playing anything recognizable on it anytime soon.
The four strings are tuned to DGBE and use a medium string set. 25" tuning length. Two piezo disks wired in parallel. The piezo kit, strings, and half moon tuners are from http://www.cbgitty.com
where I get all of my guitar parts except for common hardware parts like the brass bolt and nuts. Some Corian scrap is used for the "nut" and was provided by Ger21 a few years ago. The heart tailpiece is CNC machined using Padauk wood. The top panel has a 7" by 7" piece of 2mm birch aircraft plywood glued to the underside with 3M 90 contact adhesive to prevent the top panel from bowing too much from pressure on the bridge when the strings are tuned. It makes the guitar sound better than without it. It even has a decent amount of "ring" to it when a string is picked. The peg head is Vcarved via mapping onto the 3D model for the peg head such that the text follows the curve upwards toward the "nut".
This is a very playable guitar by someone who knows how to play cigar box style guitars with four strings. Does it sound like a Martin, Gibson, Fender? Nope, and doesn't even attempt to. These have a unique sound sort of like a banjo. There are loads of videos online using this kind of guitar.
