Another guitar I just made. It is an older bed pan (urinal) guitar. It ihas 6 strings and I piezo pickup. I used morado and shedua as the fret board. The fret markers are paduak. The bed pan really resonates. The bridge is purpleheart and deer antler.

I’ve seen this done with a banjo neck, which somehow seemed more, um, appropriate.

Nice work.

Don’t tell me you don’t like banjo music?

Next thing you’ll be saying bad things about bagpipes. lol

What a perfect idea! The sound hole is already built into it.

I bet you get some very loud sounds out of this – really wish I could hear it.

Great job!

looks a little crappy to me. And shouldn’t that be a pee-iezo pickup? Thank you…I’ll be here all week…tip your server.

Really, though…looks like fun and good craftsmanship. I hope it really gets the potty started!
