AGP #369 - “Tamjo” 3 String Diatonic Fretted (????)
Scale:648mm/25½inches Strings:.024BW/.016PS/.012PS/
Tuned D A d
The Neck is recycled Poplar from my deconstructed Piano I acquired a few years back, the 6mm Hexagon Nut was also from the same Piano, the de-cymbaled Tambourine, has a Birch Ply Body with a Polyester Skin.
Not sure what category of instrument this build fits into, Banjo?/Dulcijo?/Strummy Stick?/, I used elements from all 3 when building, but!, unfortunately it was not the success I thought it would be, very poor Acoustic Volume, and has no Banjo type ring to it at all, I wasn’t going to fit a Pickup, but now glad I did!, albeit one those Piezo Discs I don’t normally like!, in case anyone is wondering why the Piezo Disc is fitted to the underside of the Neck instead of the topside, and then hidden with 50 cent Coin, is because it’s what’s referred to in the CBG building world as, a “Stuff Up”
:-D

"Thanks Daniel", I use as much recycled materials as I can in my builds, mainly because it's free!, and yes I agree!, it's much nicer, if an explanation of building methods and  materials used, is posted along with the Pics of a new build, it's all about sharing ones own ideas, in the hope someone can learn something new!, that's how I initially learnt, when I first started the CBG odyssey some years back!  :-)

awesome description! we use what's ever in sight, right?. nice nut. i'd like if more builders waxed poetic about their builds.

"Yep! Bones", it's all about what's on hand!  and especially if it's "FREE"  :-D

Great use of what’s at hand Cobba .

"Thanks BQ", I finally found a use for this plentiful supply of Hex Rod, but after 6 years I have no memory of what part of the Piano they came from , or what their use was. :-)
