AGP #435 - “Taz” 3 String Fretless Guitar
Scale:600mm/23⅝ inches
Strings:.050NW/.034NW/.024NW/
Tuned: F C f

The 2 pieces of recycled Tasmanian Oak pictured have been sitting in my shed for many years, and I have no idea where they originated from, they have been patiently waiting to be used for some type of build, so this is it, an entire build using only Tasmanian Oak, hence the name “Taz”, the recycled piece on the left was used for the Body, and the Neck & Fretboard were “Bunnings” purchases.

All Timber is coated with 2 coats of “British Paints Acrylic Clear Gloss”, the Map and Taz were pyrographed, and a 7k Single Coil Tele Type Neck Pickup is Hardwired to the Output Jack, and a grounding wire runs from the Jack to the underside of the Hardtail Bridge. :-)

"Thanks 'UJ' & Bob, Correctamundo, it's our very own "Taz" from the Warner Brothers Looney Tunes series from the "Days of Yore", and Bob ,I also used to watch it with my kids, and more often by myself!, ;-D

Yes to the headstock. Reminds me when I used to watch the Disney cartoon with my kids.

Love that headstock. I guess that answers my question - the map is of Taz.
