the sound from the low sounding strings can go to a different amp than
the thinner strings. My original output section was flimsy. I finaly
repaired it with an El Pico coffee can. The can cut and bent very
nicely to form. The metal will also help keep electrical buzzes out of
my sound. One added plus to choosing El Pico besides the fact that the
color matches, is that the coffee is really quite good. Deep and rich
with a vibrant bite. Note the 'extra fine grind' on the can. Now to
get to work on the music.

built in summer of 2008. The neck is off a Martin travel guitar. The
body was built by me. It has a solid spruce top and thick poplar
sides. It travels well; the back even opens to hold sheet music. More
pictures of that feature later.
