More good stuff from member Ranjit –

The frets are bamboo skewers – I tuned them by ear so the tuning is kind of shaky. I might add more frets later. Note how the bamboo bridge rests on a point on the membrane (architectural vellum)- this helps to transfer the vibrations of the string.

It would be awesome to add a pickup and plug it into Steve’s coconut amp, seen below. (I’ll spare you the applicable “nutty” puns) –Link
