forgot to mention below with mine, it is acoustic and electric, the breakup in the lettering between the necks are the sound holes though you cant see em with a picture of this low quality lol

here we go, just finished stringing it back up what i am fondly reffering to as the Double Goth. its a 1 string bass on top, tuned A, fretless and played by pressing the string to the board for each note. silver points and chrome thumbtacks for fret markers (need more pictures allowed) and eyebolt tuner. the bottom is a 3 string slide bass, tuned A-E-a just like an open A CBG but one octave lower, also frettless but played with pick and slide for a unique sound. ebony black with chromw accecents and eyebolt tuners signature to Uncle Crow builds. enjoy

Harp guitar made using a large La Flor Dominicana box and aged cherry.My inspiration to build the harp guitar came when i saw a posting by Shane and his rough draft on the Nation. Making it required on my part, searching and looking at harp guitars on the interent, as well as visits to a local harp store where information was shared. The cherry wood used for the necks, and fretboard were milled over forty years ago and purchased from a neighbor ten years ago. It is strung with low E strings on the harp and Martin medium acoustics on the guitar. The tuners are geared banjo tuners and i decided to use them as a result of how the necks joined together. The people on the Nation and at the Clubhouse are some of the most supportive and creative folks. They are willing to share their ideas and knowledge with anyone who asks! It really can't get much better than that!
