Nice build Unc.  I have one (a Punch) lacking volume also so glad you posted this.   I need to order more frets so I'll  have one included.  Thanks!

You built a fine one-stringer, Uncle John. I didn't hear it before the addition of the Gitty cone, but I can tell you it sounds terrific with it.

Plus, I'm happy to read that you built this for a church fundraiser. What a great way this is to support your church, and I know that along with the song tab booklet, this gitty will make its new owner proud.

Thanks, Dave.  A little finish work still needed.  I built this one for a church fund raiser auction.  A little booklet of song tab will go with it.  I think these are something that a lot of people will plunk on.  Gonna build some more when the weather allows.
