On holiday with friends in Norway recently one day i knocked up this CBG, its rough as hell but was built with what was in the barn.Box is pine made from pine barn planking planed down, Neck 2x1 pine, tuners studding & nuts, bridge 2" of rebar. We had no polish but as the barns in Norway are invariably painted red & there was a drum of that handy thats what i used!

Much to everyones surprise it actually sounded pretty good & was quite loud, Of course it could only be named "Barn to be wild"

Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely gift. The red paint makes a statement.

Huh. I think I'd have called it "Norwegian Wood." >:-E
