AGP #421 - “Steak ‘n’ Kidney Pi” - 3 String Fretless Panjo
Scale: 635mm/25inches
Strings: .038NW 026NW .018NW
Tunings: GDg AEa ADG
Found these two forgotten $2 Pie Pans when scrounging through my Charity Shop find box’s for a Top to use in my last build, AGP #420, and remembered I’d seen and liked a very likeable 2 Pie Plate Tin build some years back, finally tracked it down, to a build by Bob Hillbilly Ingram, so thanks Bob for the inspiration for this build.
The Neck is Grey Ironbark & European Beech, finished with Organoil Natural Wax & Polish, a 4.4k Delta Type Single Coil Pickup is wired through Vol & Tone Pots to the Output Jack.
I’m quite happy with sound of it at the moment, but not sure whether to stick with the current strings, or restring it with lighter Banjo’y Type Gauges. :-)

"Thanks Pick", was named after my favourite "Meat Pie", which is also known Down Under as a Mystery Bag, Rats Coffin, Maggot Bag, Dogs Eye, etc......................:-D

"Thanks Doug", was aware of the Pi symbol, but I can assure you, I have never used it :-D

"Thanks Bob", all the ingredients are au-natural, bar a little bit of wax on the woodwork. :-)

Very Cool! Using the Pi symbol was a nice touch. A favorite of Math majors everywhere.
