The Pallet Reso by Cigar Box Nation member, Sanddraggin.
"Here's a shot of me playing my latest Reso. The neck is an old Kay v-neck I refretted. The box is made from a pallet with some paduak trim for flavor. The cover is a copper sheet I banged out"
"Two of the most freakish guitars in my extremely weird guitar collection are by Tone-A-Cane Copper Pipe Guitars and Pete Regan’s Metal Guitars. Both are crafted using metal for body and necks…and both are so heavy, you could win bar fights with them."
VIDEO DEMO: The only thing that sounds better than a P-90 'Soapbar" pickup is when a P90 is shoved into a cigar box guitar.
