The point of this guitar is to have something that's not fragile like a fine wooden guitar that can come along for the ride, whatever or wherever the ride may be. It wouldn't have been the first choice for Andrés Segovia for a concert, but it doesn't sound bad either.

I'm not an accomplished musician by any means, but having this guitar along made the trip for me and my two pups much more enjoyable. I made this at a remote campsite on the banks of the Alabama River, miles away from the nearest building. A lullaby for the pups...

That guitar is great, so is your playing, but when the dog comes in at the end makes that video

Thanks! That's Roscoe... he was constantly scouring the shoreline for sticks I'd be likely to throw for him. The other dog, Bailey, who was half under my chair, was a little more laid back.

Blacktop:


Nicknamed by my brother "Blacktop," this prototype 3-pound guitar was half-filled with rainwater many times in the 45 days of the trip and usually I could pour the water out the hollow neck, set it in the sun a few minutes, and it wouldn't even be out of tune! I now take it whenever I'm camping with the dogs in the sidecar (pic in my sig line).

He's planning to make these (now on his third design - this was the first) as one-off, custom instruments for people wanting a quality instrument that's unaffected by weather.
This is beyond cool. Does your brother have a price range in mind? Light, AND tough.. I have always just brought my harmonica because of those two demands... this would change things!

I asked him yesterday - $3,000-4,000 range most likely.
