I built one of these for myself (see my other projects or blog) and my niece fell in love with it. She wanted one just like it, almost. I made this one with a walnut neck left over from a few coffee tables that I built. The fretboard is quartersawn sycamore though there are no frets as the guitar is meant to be played with a glass or metal slide. My niece wanted all “gold” metal accessories so I found gold tuners and knobs and brass soundhole covers.
The gift was presented with a nifty clip-on tuner and an assortment of picks. It was a big hit with her and I again had fun building it. I cannot stress enough what a fun little project these are. My next one will have frets like a traditional guitar and may be a four-string version.
I hope you enjoy seeing this as much as I did building it.
Thanks for looking,
