THE RACK reverse whamola and 3 string lap hybrid

.By request for something weird / wild and bass in a lap hybrid .
I made a reverse whamola as a separate neck . to have all kinds of weird ass wowey , droning ,accelerator, groaning , bass yumyums on . ;-)
Check out “ whamola” on youtube if you are not familiar with them .
I have to thank Smilingdog for putting me onto them a while ago .
.. it ain’t a stand up , it’s a lap , and the arm is reversed .. you can whack it with a stick and control the arm .. , or use the stick as a slide while controlling the arm . or lock it into place with the lil pin and holes behind the arm . and finger fret it or use a slide , even play it with a bow .. .. ; endless possibilities . ;-)
The guitar part is the regular 3 stringer .. slide
The switch
Up = guitar on high / bass off
Middle = guitar on low / bass on
Bottom = both on regular .
Both necks have mini humbuckers covered in burlap.
The Polynesian art designs are all hand done with oil pen .. lol I was up till 6 am doing it one night .
Then I heat transferred his 3 bird logo on the switch plate .
She’s 5 feet long :-o……… and tons of fun .
