Super Low G Lefty License Plate Guitar

"This is truly original, Doug. The orange frets show off nicely. Interesting tail piece and bridge. I'd like to see a photo of the box inside without a plate attached. I remember you said you can switch plates without removing the stings."

Missed you Sunday! I hope you are doing well.  I see you listened to the chugger I showed to the gang on Sunday. It has the fishing line strings I got from Will. Interesting tone.
