AGP #361 - “Erasmo” - (Tin in a Box Guitar) - Scale:584.2mm/23inches
Strings :.049NW/.032NW/.022NW/ - Tuning :G D g
This is a Build that has been on my “Bucket List” for a few years now, obviously inspired by the “Fastest Picker North, South, East and West of the Pecos” Erasmo Coco, sadly I think no longer on the Nation site, but is still Alive and Kicking on other Media sites, “Saluti Erasmo”
The Box is Recycled Pine Fence Palings, the Neck is Tasmanian Oak, the Fretboard is Recycled Piano Poplar, a 4.3k MGB Five Dolla Pup is hardwired to the Output Jack, but is an unnecessary addition, as this Build sounds it’s best as an Unplugged Acoustic, don’t know if it will make much difference, but might add a couple of Sound Holes?. :-)

"Thanks David", Yep!, turned out to be a great idea for smaller Tins, the Tone & Volume was much more than I expected!  :-)

"Thanks Derek", the Maple Leaf was an afterthought for our Canadian Mate!, might fill in the outline & name with White, to highlight it a bit more :-)
