AGP #446 - “Jolly Jumbuck”
3 String Fretless Stainless Steel Wok Smoker Guitar
Scale: 584.2mm/23 inches Tuned: B F# b
Strings : .038NW .026NW .018NW
The brand new Stainless Steel Wok thingy was a $5 Charity Shop purchase, took me a while to find out what it actually was, but did discover they sell for around $50.
The Neck is Merbau, the Fretboard is Qld Walnut, the Back is glued together 11mm thick off cuts, from my recent Guitar Carousel builds, and Stained Brown, all timber is coated with ‘Organoil Natural Wax & Polish’.
A 9.8 Dual Rail Humbucker is wired through a Tone Pot to the Output Jack.

"Thanks Bob", I have put a little bit of practice into "Waltzing Matilda" in the past, but never got around to doing a Vid of it, and sadly haven't had a Pick Up since retiring some 15 yrs ago. :-)

Cracking build AGP.  Will you be playing "Waltzing Matilda" on it in your pick-up?

"Thanks UJ", Yep!, slowly getting the hang of it, should have it down pat after another 446 builds

;-D
