Proto is resurrected!

Lots of work done on this beauty recently. I was never 100% happy with the neck... Wasn't bad, just not perfect. So neck was recarved, and oiled to a lovely chunky C shape moving up to a chunky D towards the body. Lighter strings and a bit of neck adjustment means it now works as a slide guitar, and as a fretless. The body of this instrument was a drawer from a workbench in my first workshop that I held onto. Reshaped to reflect the Pento guitars I was building last year. The "resonator" was found on the beach in may be part of a motor...not sure!

And the fingerboard is a vintage yardstick.

No fret markings at the moment but can be added if required before dispatch.
