Steel body spider bridge resonator. Round neck and set up to play like a regular guitar. It's going to have a P90 in the neck position and maybe a piezo under the bridge. My experience with peizos has been that they sound good if you run them through a preamp or clean boost. Moved the truss rod access to the heel - will get to it through the cutout for the P90. I got Nic at Great Lakes pickups working on the P90 for me. I had never seen these "rennaissance" pattern f holes but decided I like them. Got some 20 ga cold rolled semi-killed steel and made the kind of drawings so the water jet guys can cut the top and back for me. Those f-holes in particular would have been a hassle to cut. Found my neck wood and laminated it together. It's dry now and just needs to run thru the planer. Close up of the cherry and maple Nickel plating is affordable and that is probably what I will do. But I'm very tempted to do one of these in copper and hit it with the torch for heat patina. I think the neck woods I chose for this are not quite right for the copper thing - so maybe I will leave that for the second one.
