Hi, here are some photos of one of three "Anzac" guitars I'm building. These biscuit tins were brought out [with the famous Anzac Biscuit] to commemorate the men and women who fought for Australia in the Gallipoli Campaign in1915.

The body is a mixture of tin and timber. A pickup is needed as the acoustic sound is a bit wanting, so these are electric guitars. The fingerboard is salvaged from some old neck and resized, 303 bullet shells are used as a tailpiece and peghead decoration and a commemorative one dollar coin is inlaid in the peghead too. Thanks for looking. Cheers Taff
