The bridge is a piece of metal rod I found on the side of a road. The plate was not in pristine condition: scruffy and crinkled. So it seemed a good match with the pallet wood.

Stunningly scruffy. I like that. Heck, half the time or more, that is my goal.

"Nice T-Gripped", the rustic pallett wood, bridge & tailpiece suits the black & white plate perfectly!

Pallet wood. Good eye deer and a nice LPG.

Looks like been played since '67. Great job on the recycling & ageing. You got me thinking. I have a battered unknown date Illinois vanity plate, a ready made lpg box & the startings of a neck kicking about. Mmmm....
