Just finished this build…went with the hawk theme on this one. Carved a hawks head on the bottom of the neck and a feather. Carved bocote feather jack plate, mahogany neck with bocote fretboard, old western cedar cigar box with a tax stamp date- 1910. Carved out ” hawk ” soundholes, Bocote carved ” hawk ” rod piezo bridge. 3 strings with a 23 1/2” scale length. Sounds great acousticly and killer plugged in.

That is one interesting looking instrument! I used to play a little guitar – and I do mean little – until I found out that my fingers aren’t meant for playing stringed instruments. :( I wish I could hear the “killer” sound from it, though.

You need to go back and make videos of all your instruments. I love the unique sounds of the mountain music style.
