Instruments built by Slow Mick (aka Mikhail Yakunkin)

There is a line of 3pcs of Solid Bogy Guitars (SBG), which were inspired by design of CBG, I met in internet. All were manufactured by me in 2022-2023.

So the first two instruments were used as prototypes to develop the final design (#3) and Guitar body final shaping, including selection of necessary tools, materials and type of woods and coating used.

Special attention was dedicated to development and assembling of the flat pick-up, which really allows to simplify the construction of the neck. Extensive experiments with design allowed to get reasonable output signal.

Looking forward for comments, questions. 

Best Regards.

Here is additional pictures of presented 3 String Guitars with flat Pick-up.  

You can see how (Inductive) pick-up is positioned  between the "through neck" and strings above.

On pictures you can also see:

- decorative cover to hide location of the pick-up transformer.

- how the neck is fixed to the solid body (back side of solid body).

- decorative aluminium cover plate with holes for strings installation (back side of solid body).
