Future project

Here's an instrument which I'd like to make some day:

  • Three string blues slide guitar
  • For playing seated
  • Sliding nut
  • No strap
  • Spine: 30 X 12 mm aluminium rectangular beam - freely vibrating
  • Piezo pickup on aluminium beam
  • Sliding pickup under strings- probably an ultra flat one with few primary windings and a current transformer.
  • Plunger tuners (this principle)
  • Minimalistic ergonomic body - the first version would probably be made from heat-bent acrylic plate
