This 3 string and accompanying case were made out of sheet metal from the outside of an old dishwasher. Tuners (found as a pack of 6 on a carboot sale) are cased in a little Dutch "Panter" metal cigar box. The sides of the guitar was "upholstered" with strips of an old leather pants and for the case I used an old corduroy trousers. The neck was made out of an old window frame, the fretboard still has the influences of the weather on it (only a layer of wax) The hinges on the case were made from reflective canvas band and "sawtooth" picture frame hangers.As well as the base for the case,the semi-hollow body was made out of leftover pine scraps.
