3 string electric tuned GDG. The 4 string BB plays so well I decided to make a 3 string because as you know sometimes the 4th gets in the way! I added a tone control to this version & used the surround as a soundhole cover.

UJ, I might be interested. Does the amp need a compressed air generator for power?

Cheers for your comment Andries yes it's pretty solid

I have an air guitar amp that I would give you a fine deal on. Free shipping.

UJ, it looks like it could be an "Air Guitar pick up" or a speaker :))

slick.

Thanks for the comments Lonman I appreciate it. Yes it's a soundhole but these were intended to be  electric & high sustain, so not very loud acoustically. I obtained a Chinese single coil pick up for an accoustic that fits on a standard circular soundhole. I adapted the surround that normally secures it as a soundhole cover & wire mesh fitted behind

Comment by Lonman on July 20, 2019 at 10:30am

nice, I like how you did the soundhole. Cool idea
