Hi Guys, this is just for fun build by using a larger dog bowl and box. Now its strung up and played for a day I can see there is more work to do.

I want a better acoustic sound and better sound from the piezo pickup. I'm also going to change the fingerboard nut and bridge for better playability. So let the fun begin, i'll keep you posted.

I stood it along side another reso to show the difference.

Cheers Taff
