A bit different guitar this year , “DEAR JOHN “ A piezo powered Typewriter / Dear john letter / Service member theme witch , with a kalimba , with typewriter key heads as the kalimba tines . (they worked surprisingly well ) and since I don’t like piezos too much (but this guitar needed one ), I installed a caramel resister cap on it so it doesn’t sound like a cat being pulled through a keyhole, and you can crank it up a bit more without hearing the hair on your arms rubbing against the neck. Etc .. I also forward mounted the piezo , then added a metal bridge brace to the back of it to direct sound from strings and kalimba more evenly . even redneck grounded to the metal plate.
She’s a turtle of a different feather indeed.
Top mounted neck ,
Typewriter / Dear john letter / Service member theme .
Typewriter parts

Enjoy .! Enter to win , or help a good cause .
