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.

now you just need to figure out how to incorporate a whoopie cushion inside for the “final note” :^)

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

Nice work.

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!
