"Wow, that cover shape is A LOT like a resonator cone! How does it sound acoustically? Being a motor head, I love this one!"

Wow JP, that irrigation pipe guitar is beautiful. You did a fabulous job of slicking it out. Looks like a motor cycle tank or space item. What did you polish it with? I'm trying to find a good polish for old guitar finishes.

Thanks JP, you have a great day as well. I'll be fussing with a Speed Demon today. Making a bridge and setting the neck. The actions going down... Dave

Hey JP, nice banjo. I'm a 4 stringer. I've got a nice Ida banjo (5 string) sitting next to me. I don't play it much. I've got it's resonator to fix. Guess i'm not interested in one, though yours looks very good. Thanks for going to the trouble of sending good photos. .... Dave
