My newest build the Chopsitar!!!!

Congratulations to Andrew Chopstick for becoming the newest proud owner of the one and only Chopsitar.....

and some close ups....
 this is great..its a view from the input  looking in...looks like a big cave!!!...I want ALFV to play in there with a great light show..........

These are copper knobs from scratch
 Copper hardware etched real perty like
this part of the gourd is painted gold!!! and black....
 so is this
more copper
 custom headstock # 7
Gourd from the gourd farm......So there you have it.....this instrument features a newer design to match the headstock.  It has two "shoulders" instead of one with of course the special bridge which makes it create overtones......I hope to figure out a way to upload a sample of the way it sounds
