AGP #450 - “Arfa Git”
3 String Fretless Guitar
Strings: .042NW .028NW .019NW
Tuned: G D g
The Body & Fretboard is Recycled Radiata Pine, the Neck is Recycled Merbau, coated with a Brown Stain and Citronella Lamp Oil, which has been gathering dust in the shed for a few years, worked well, smells nice & should keep the Mozzies away!
After 450 odd builds, which equates to abt 1,350 Machine Heads, your bound to get a few that are a bit worse for wear, or shoddily made, the three mismatched ones used here have been rescued by the addition of new geared cogs, the String Ferrules are ⅛ inch Rivet pieces.
A 6.2k MGB Mini Box Bucker Pup is wired through Vol and Tone Pots to the Output Jack, the Jack & Vol Tone plates are offcuts of Galvanised Roofing Strap. :-)

"Thanks UJ & Keith", I still have no idea where the Lamp Oil came from, I have no memory of ever using it. :-)

So 3 strings + half a guitar = makes sense. Looks really nice.

You are playing with fire, Alan. I hope you had adult supervision. It made a nice finish.
