, I make metal bodied resonator guitars from brass, copper, steel and wood.

All of the variations in style, ie #F#holes, slots, single cone style coverplate on tricones, are available in each material.

Rustbuckets are made from old sheets of corrugated steel that I scrounge from building demolition sites and farms etc.

After contacting Don about the weird soundhole grille on the side of the guitar I found it was one of the first 12 he made and the buyer requested it.
