Electric gopichand

The hour and a half creation cobbled together last night from things lying around the house, which I christen "Hey This Thing Works, Sort Of, Mark I". Hopefully it survives until next Saturday for the Firehouse show. Maybe a more reliable Mark II version will be in existence by then.

A traditional gopichand.

A PAF copy (with serious microphonic feedback issues) and input jack fitted into a plastic Folger's coffee container.

Bottom of the container showing the input jack and ball end of string.

Tuner set into a PVC cylinder bolted to a pair of 20 gauge galvanized steel straps connected to the coffee container. I sooo need a better camera.
