Body: Black Limba with an aluminum resonator cone/cover with dual sound holes (they aren't speakers).
Neck: Walnut with a mahogany stabilizer
Fret board: Exotic New Guinean Ebony. This was the most expensive piece of the build @ $55.
Head Stock: Hand carved from a Mahogany, Ebony and Walnut blend.
Electronics: Single-coil, low-profile pickup at the neck, a piezo pickup inside the body with an alpha control knob to blend the two pickups and a tone knob for the final output.

Pickup purchased from Victory Guitars at: https://reverb.com/item/259424-lowrider-vintage-gold-foil-standard-...

Setup with an open G 4-string tuning with a high action for slide play.

Big thanks to Charles Atchison for his awesome handmade reso and cover. In addition Charles helped me customize the biscuit and bridge for my high-action setup.

Beautiful resonator build.  I am impressed with the apparent meticulous detail. The resonator reminds me of the wheel covers on a dually truck, which I say with great fondness. Merry Christmas!
