Converted 3 string electric/acoustic resonator slide guitar spoon. Beechwood body serving spoon designed and manufactured by Kikkerland. Handwash only. String scale is 7 ¾ inches nut to saddle.
Resonator is repurposed and adapted from the end of discarded paper towel dispenser. Spring mounted inside resonator to create reverb through direct transduction is from a discarded ballpoint pen.
Strings are hand wound J&J waxed dental floss (unflavored to reduce tone decay).
Tuning pegs are drilled copper shaker box tacks. Nut and saddle carved from Corian countertop scraps. Tuning is currently G D G although it tends to go out of tune when played forcefully.
Piezo disk pickup is from CB Gitty and is encased in foam tape inside resonator. I/4 inch output jack is suported by
modified cigar box wood insert.
Demo is played through Micro Cube with a bit of reverb. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynmtcj4L35k)
Sounds nothing like a resonator guitar but is somewhat playable and has decent tone if you like that sort of thing. ;)
