The Kettle Gourd was the smallest of 2 that has been sitting in my shed for the last couple of years, was very thin walled with a largish hole in it from being blown off the shed roof while drying out, so inside has been reinforced with fibreglass, the Headstock Wings are Spruce Pine, the Soundboard is 3mm Pine Ply and the Neck, Bridge & Nut are Spotted Gum, a 9.5k P54 H Style Humbucker is hardwired to the Jack,
Had to build one after watching young Casey Baron’s recent vid on his lovely Irish Bouzouki Strung Build, I just wish I could play as well as he does.
