I’ve been wanting to make one of these for some time now.
What a fun build with a very musical outcome.
My son doesn’t want to put it down!

Woods; Cherry, Maple, Ebony – Bridge, & Mahogany inlay.
Finished with Danish Wood Oil then several coats of Wipe on Poly.

Thanks for looking!

Very unique! Can you have your son play this for us?

Nice instrument Nick. The wood blends well. Did you make a template for putting in the frets? It is nice to see someone appreciate and play an instrument that you built.

Thanks Guys,
Don; I did layout the frets from some plans but also double checked those dimensions with a fret calculator, while I was at it I made a story pole for the next one.

Cool instrument! Like the beautiful shape and wood choice and the inlay is a great accent. Great job!

Have your say...
