New Wine Box Guitar "Missy Mae" Rat Rods and Pinup Girls

My latest built, 4 string fretless, sound sample. All visual content created my me.
Guitar: very old wine box, needed a lot of work done to it, it was rotten, and very soft, did some magic mojo to it to make it sturdy, and very resonate with out adding a bunch of wood to the inside. Aluminum fret board, fretless. Maple neck. An old salvaged Seymour Duncan hidden under the lid. Ebony piano key for bridge. Dave Lynas slides used for sound sample. models :Missy, Sheinelle, Shlebers,Witney, Niki, Jordan. Rat Rod in pinup belongs to Pete.

Thanks A.D ! I have commited myself to the journey of getting the best sound i can out of my builds, both acoustically, and electric. Lots of progress made on last couple builds..... science is fun  lol. Now if the weather would straighten out, i do have some things id like to roll out of my batcave.

Man . . . That is one AWESOME Sounding slider you have built for yourself there StormingSteve!!!  Crisp sounding and clear - also some wonderful visuals you selected and compsed in that  video presentation as well . . . Keep at it brother - the more we do with these CBG's the better and more confident we get at what we're doing with them!!!  :-)

Thanks Richard, that means a lot to me, you guys are all the greatest ! This started out with tme thinking it would be a great new hobie to replace the motor scooter stuff, since i could no longer ride. But it has turned out to be highly therapeutic for me...... music, music related stuff always has been the best !
