AGP #426 - “Git-Harp-Diddy” - Three in One Guitar
The 3 String Fretless Neck is 648mm/25½ inches Scale, Strings are .038NW/.024NW/.017PS/ Tuned GDg.
The 6 String Harpy Type Thingy Scale Lengths vary between 655mm for the low D and 680mm for the high D, and is Tuned DGDGBD.
The Fretless 1 String Bass Scale is 685.8mm/27 inches, and is currently strung with a .072NW String, Tuned to G, but will probably be changed changed to a lighter gauge, to make it more of a Diddley Bow than a Bass.
The Box Frame is recycled 30mm Solid Radiata Pine, the Soundboard and Back are flattened recycled Galvanised Roofing Iron, the Necks are recycled Grey Ironbark, the Fretboards are recycled Spotted Gum, the Harp Headstock and the 3 String Headstock Wings are recycled Beech, all Timber was stained Dark Brown and coated with an Acrylic Clear Gloss.
The Noise is supplied by 3 Fender Jazz Bass 4 String Style Pickups, which are wired through one Master Tone Pot and three separate Volume Pots and a three way switch to the Output Jack, the wiring diagram I used was that of a 3 Humbucker Les Paul with 3 Volume Controls & Master Tone Control, I had no idea how this setup was supposed to work, or if in fact it would work, and I can assure you no one was more surprised when it did work, than me!
Will try and get a sound sample up soon, but I have no idea of what or how to play this critter successfully, will probably be a Noodling type demo!
