That's awesome dude!  :like:  How does it sound?

Remarkably good. But most importantly, it puts a smile on my face.  :D

I think it might benefit from an amp.

(Mind you, I can't play guitar...yet...so my assessments should be taken with a big pinch of salt.)

Looks amazing nix  :salute: Will you slide with it or chords?

I'd love to hear how you went about making such a beauty.

I thought it was a kit guitar, but it was about 95% assembled. Took all of 10-minutes to put together. It's fretless and, as I understand, meant to be used with a slide....which is what my soul craves. It's a three-string blues machine with open tuning (G-D-G). The only thing easier would be a one-string diddly bow. And that's not out of the question here if this one proves to be beyond my limited ablities.  ;)

I actually got this one as a starting point to mess with while I plan to actually build my own from scratch. 'Cuz that's the diddly bow & cigar box tradition. Lots for me to learn here.  :D

going back through this thread has really given me another wind at learning to play

I'm about as musical as a catterwallin' cat but I do love to listen to good music of all kinds. I have found that the folks who play homemade insturments make the best musit. :climber:

With the open tuning you don't need much to make slide sound cool - it'll be the twiddly chording in between the slides that'll take the practise. good fun and Good luck  :cheers:

Way cool, Exeter.  8)

I'm starting to think we need to form an MTo band. Anybody have a drum kit? (I have a bodhrán which I play better than the guitar, but that doesn't seem to fill the band's needs.) We're also gonna need a guy on keyboards.

Now for a name......  "The Multitones"?

Yes, and my daughter as well!



This pic is actually allowed here since there are 300-350 SAKs in the background :)

Two of my favorite instruments are Yamahas from the late 80's early 90's.



Im not really a superstrat guy, but the neckthrough construction in the 1212s makes her a very confortable guitar, and with 3 switches and 3 push-pulls its also very versatile. In the future I will swap the two original singles for laces as well.

The bass is an RBX5, and it has an amazing neck. It doesn't feel like a "5 stringer". And the fact that it sounds well is a plus... :D
