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 smilindog1", all my builds have the Pirate Skull & Crossbones Stud on them somewhere, nearly always on the Headstock, where a 4th Machine Head would go :-)

Pirate headstock, nice look..

"Thanks UJ", sometimes simple is best with the headstock, and still should be able to rescue some more of those tuners in the centre pic.  :-)

Good looking Head Stock and that center pic is really cool.
