Scrap wood, neck from an old mando (painted by my daughter), old tuners, humbucking pup, sounds pretty good.

Andy - this is indeed a keeper!  Great folksiness!   And the fact that wasn't too nasty in church, may well have saved your soul!  Trust me - Rev. Bluejeans!

Art! Beautiful indeed.

Well rad Andy .

Comment by Andy Busch on February 5, 2018 at 1:50pm

Yes, it is a player.  Thanks UJ.  I played it in church yesterday.  It doesn't sound as nasty or loud as I had hoped, so I might need to move the pup a little closer to the strings, or maybe just the shorter strings at higher pitches don't vibrate as widely as they do on guitars.  But it does work, and actually plays OK.

You and your daughter got this one right visually.  I hope it is a player too.
