"I did not get the sound I thought I would out of a dog bowl. I 86d the body, gave the bowl to charity, and used the neck on another git. I had some good luck though with a 4 inch shower drain cover and a tin underneath. I thought maybe the dog bowl…"

"You would get a great improvement in sound by increasing the downward pressure of the strings on the saddle.Rake the neck down to increase the height of the bridge .The strings on your photos will exert little downward pressure."
