This instrument is made from an old silverware box as the body with a 3 piece neck. The neck is made square with an oak bottom and two pieces of cherry as sides and exotic paduak for the fretboard. There`s a soundport in the peghead and the other ends inside the body. One of my own custom made bridges with a rod piezo pickup in it. A Ted Crocker downunder hand wound pickup with on a redwood burl spacer also adds some electric`s to it.The three main woods used in this instrument are…Paduak, cherry and red oak. It has a 24” scale length, 4 strings. Gold finished tuners and fret wire. Bone top nut and bridge saddle.
