So last week, my wife bought a new chopping board which made the current wooden one redundant. so, Hell, I thought, there must be a way to turn this into something, and today, here it is:

4 string, fretted, the bridge is a motorcycle wheel spoke which locates over the rod piezo pickup. On the back I have used a small cigar box to hide the wiring and locate the jack output. The sound is fairly dead, like an electric guitar, but plugged in, it is WOW!
