Using math and methods derived from building from a C.B.Gitty kit I created this custom body and neck for by brother-in-law, Bobby. I made an MDF frame and skinned it with 1/4 inch plywood. THe strings pass through the body and ride on screw heads that act as a bridge and nut.

More images of the build can be seen here.
