Step 1: Tools and Parts Needed
(1) Empty Altoids Tin
(3) Rulers, paint stir sticks, or I used banister rail spacers
(3) Guitar Strings (I used the top 3)
(1) Old BIC pen
(1) Some plastic (credit cards work well)
(3) 3/16 x 2 Eye bolts
(1) 1/8 mono jack
Drill with various drill bits
Hot Glue Gun
Step 2: Make room for the neck
WARNING! Make sure you are cutting on the correct side. You want the nice Altoids logo to be displayed correctly when playing it. I am right handed, so I made the cut on the right side of the tin.
I used a drill to put holes in the box. Then I used a small knife on my multitool to cut the box out.
Step 3: Cut holes for the strings and the 1/8 jack
You also need to make a hole for the 1/8 jack. I used a slightly larger drill bit and then bored out the hole with a pair of needlenose plyers.
