AGP #447 - “Thirdgo”
3 String Fretless Baritone Guitar
Scale: 27 inches
Strings: .042NW/.028NW/.019NW/
Tuned: G D g
As the name suggests, I had three goes at doing something with this Ebay Wine Carry Box, the first attempt was an Indigenous Australian Dot Art design, but after getting half way through doing a couple of thousand dot’s, decided I wasn’t happy with the way it was looking, so took the sander to it, and removed them all, next attempt was an Indigenous Australian Flag design, using cans of spray paint, that turned out to be a disastrous mess, so out come the Turps and Acetone etc., along with some heavy sanding, to create a new, but relict type canvas to work on, the Neck is recycled Spotted Gum, which was given a tickle with the Blow Torch, the Box was given a coat of a Light Brown Stain, and it along with Neck was then coated with Tung Oil.
An 11.6k Humbucker is wired through Vol & Tone Pots to the Output Jack and grounded to the underside of the Hardtail Bridge. :-)
