The Seasick thread....

... inspired me to give it a go.

The results, with whatever bits a pieces I had to hand or left redundant in the garage.

Haha, cool.
Might make one myself. Are you supposed to leave the food in the tin, does it improve tone/sustain? Laughing

Thanks, it's as it comes. Ghetto style.

That was the first time I'd plugged it in. Took about 1hr to build after finding the bits and pieces.

Probably Fran, I think the food in the tin adds a rich, juicy, saucy tone.

2x4 Woody wood. Gibson sent it to me, so I'm sure it's the best.

I asked for the Richlite stuff.... you know Gibsons version of paper mache, but they'd run out. It was all used up on their recent Les Paul Customs.

Yes... nice one but you should play it with a screwdriver not a pick just hit the string for added percussion.
