This was a 2 string chugger for a month or so. It hung on the wall and didn't get played. Erasmo and others are 2 string guys. I guess I am not.

I picked it up last week and it said it wanted to be a 3 string reso. Yesterday it got its wish.

Nice low action. Disc piezo that is pretty darn good. Side sound hole.

I think this open Dave Lynas style peg head is about the best for not needing string trees.

                   "Pure As The Driven Snow"
Morally unsullied, chaste, as in She's just sixteen and pure as the driven snow. This simile dates from the late 1500s, although driven, which means “carried by the wind into drifts,” was occasionally omitted. It is heard less often today.
