Here`s another one of my unique homemade instruments…the neck was carved from a butternut tree limb. The body has thin ash wood top and bottom with poplar slabwood sides. I carved some bone details on this one as most of my instruments also have on. The under the body frame is black walnut. Sliced butternut shell soundhole covers in the corners on the top with carved shells on the bottom. A big bloodwood ” wood spirit ” carving on the back. Piezo pickup inside the body. I luv making these instruments with a natural look to them.
