Playing around with CNC router and made this lap steel using CB Gitty parts. No time to learn so thought I would see if someone might be interested in it.

Thanks,

David

Nice build, don't know if you were going for this, but it kinda resembles the tail fin/fender of a 57 Chevy

Thanks! Yes, all about the 57 with fin, tail light, wheel well and head light. :)

wow, that is very cool. I especially like the way you did the headstock and keys

Thanks! That was the hardest part. :)

wait a sec...did the title always say "57 Custom..."? Duh!

No, I changed it based on your post. :) Thought more folks might be interested seeing '57...lol.

whew, thought I was loosing it there for a moment ;-)

That looks awesome. What pickup did you use?

Thanks! It's the Black Enclosed 4 Pole Single Coil on CB Gitty website.

I used a set of those pickups in the git of my avatar with a 4-way switch and 250k volume pot. Was a bit worried how well it would work for an electric git instead of bass, but they work well for either.

Yeah it sounds good at least for the noises I can make...lol.

Not really sure how to price it. What price range would be normal for something like this?
