4-string License Plate Guitar (wrecked)

4-stringer made from a front plate that had been in a front-end collision. Rougher vid, it was sleeting in March, and I think it jacked up my mojo ;)

Bowling ball sound holes!   Like the box.  Yep, the story adds to this.   Sounds good and good playing.

Thanks, everyone. I forgot to put that in the video, but that is just plugged straight to my Classic 30.
