Sadly even that is way beyond my meager skills.
Mine would probably end up looking like an ashtray.
I can work myself in to a corner just trying to restore one of my old lap steels.

What pains me is that there are guys on here who could sit down at that thing, and in 3 minutes make it sound better than what I play every day!

Looks like something Danny Letz is trying to put in production.

In frustration I could see mine being converted into a cheese slicer

Wow. Just wow. Makes me wonder what I--no, you--could do with an old Singer.
Look at that pedal rod, in that modern organ base....
If it had been a drop-head, I'd have bought it.

I bought that issue!

I didn't build the guitar because at the time I didn't know what a PSG was or what it was supposed to do.

Looks as though it might have worked though, at least after a fashion.

I may, in fact, be nuts. However, I am screwed onto the right bolt... Jesus!

Well Scott, it was a hobby magazine, not a professional trade journal, so I guess the more time it killed the better... Smile
