Gitty sells a box that looks like a Shellback's tattoo. For some reason it made me think of that old Steve McQueen movie The Sand Pebbles. Story about an American gun boat in China back in the 1930s. The proverbial light came on and thus my latest 3 string CBG, #22, was finally born this evening. The poplar wood neck is red only on the top and the frets, dots, and notes are wood burnt on the side. (The red stain is simply old barb wire completely dissolved in vinegar.) A little Great Granddaughter ought to be able to learn to play slide on this pretty easy now. Also wood burnt the name "Gun Boat Annie" and did a sorry looking version of the movie's fictional gun boat, the USS San Pablo, down lower on the neck. Scale is a short 21 inches. All parts except the neck are Ben's.
