This Build has been on my Builds To Do Bucket List since sometime in 2018, when I first seen a Utube Vid of a very talented Australian One Man Band Entertainer by the name of Juzzie Smith. (Link Below)
The Bamboo (which is classed as a Noxious Weed In the Land of Oz) was supplied by my Son Robert, much more than I will ever use!.
A 4.9k 4 Pole Single Coil Delta Style Pickup is Hardwired to the Output Jack, the Bamboo was coated with a Green Timber Stain and then given 3 Coats of Spray Can Clear Enamel. :-)
"Thanks 'UJ' & A.D"., Yup!, Juzzie is quite the entertainer, and Andries the solid nodes, one below the Nut and one below the Pup have been drilled out, which means the entire length is hollow. :-)
It looks great AGP# ,had a look at your link as well did see the guy before he did a tutorial on how he likes the Mouth harp and demonstrated how he learned his first lick, but the sounds he got out of that bamboo lapsteel was pretty cool !to, does yours have a hollow piece for a resonating chamber as well?
Pretty cool. And Juzzie is great!
"Thanks Poorness", initially wasn't going to stain it Green, but glad I did :-)
Oh man. That looks fantastic. Another beautiful build by AGP.
