It’s finished. And it actually works. Here’s a little ditty so you can hear it:
I have it set up with a sliding banjo capo and a high E string in place of the low E. It’s strung with flatwound strings because roundwound strings sound way too bright.
I love it! I’ll definitely be doing more recordings with this. I can still hear the 1957ness in it. (the year it was originally built)
