CAB~ cheap ass build. I do love building, but give most of them away lately. Scrap pine neck, lathe finger board and through the box heel. Scrap metal tail piece. 3 frets and acoustic only.

If it goes to someone who needs more frets and a piezo, that will be fine.

Tuned DGB or CGC.

Well Unc, I LIKE it a ton! Cool-looking, simple and indeed even different w. the less-is-more simplicity of the 3 frets. Why not? Nice! -Glenn

It's yours, Dave. I will send it your way. 

AGP, I think you like it or not.  It seems more subdued in the house here with me. 

Bones and Dennis, I appreciate what you say about the number of frets.  I think a lot of folks think it is odd, but most of them don't use those higher frets anyway.  And it does make for a nice slider and simple fret and picker.

I like the 3 frets idea too. I hadn't thought about it until seeing your comment UJ but I mostly slide above 5. This idea allows a little string height tweaking to suit the player too :)

I like the Fret idea UJ getting the best of both worlds .

Not sure about the coloured neck on this one  ;-)

Ratty needs a friend.

Comment by Dave Lynas on June 18, 2018 at 7:50pm

I think it’s got plenty frets.

Comment by Dave Lynas on June 18, 2018 at 7:49pm

I love this one Uncle. Wanna trade?

Comment by Uncle John on June 18, 2018 at 5:45pm

LOL, Jerry.  I pretty much play 3 frets ands slide the rest.

Comment by Jerry Jordan on June 18, 2018 at 3:42pm
