Yes and no!
The hole is for a strap yep but I was showing how I keep my ball ends from digging in by putting those 2 pieces of fret wire next to them.

Thanks for the feedback on the guitar and strap. I made the macrame strap while watching tv in the evenings. It's not rocket science for sure. Info is readily available at library and on the net. I am keeping it simple for now. Looks like you are not having any problems coloring outside the box!!!

Hi Fader actually it's a two year old Bear, we get alot of them out here. Looks like you and I have a lot in common I've worked with bones for years.

Thank you for your comments about my video. I love what you guys are doing here. Creating dreams and endless possibilities with these unique musical contraptions. I'm just waiting for someone to make one that flies too. I know it is only a matter of time. lol. Enjoy.

Thank you for the welcome. Playing RJ's Walking Blues on a 3 string tuned 151 could be a little tricky. Even tuned 135 you would be missing that all important bass fifth tone string where you play the flatted seventh at the third fret . Actually it might work out better on a 4 string tuned 5135. Just like a mini 6 string tuned in spanish 515135. Enjoy.

Hey Fader - thanks for the kind words I have a long way to go but how do you get any better at building if you don't get your work out there and take the heat.... So far I am hearing the Banjo comments and it's all good. The sound is pretty clear and the darn thing is fun to play. I think someone will like it. For now I am happy to pick out tunes on it... Really like your stuff I am new here so I am really just starting to get to know people. Thanks again take care- Jim
