Hi Matt , fantastic job----i guess i'll have to settle for the silver medal.Some months ago after seeing Seasick Steve, i thought i'd like to make a Diddley Bow. While at the local hardware store i saw what might be a good vehicle for my first attempt --even had the right name for a guitar.Even had your name as a product description---pickaxe/MATTock handle---go figure.

I'm a newbie to all this and hope i can come within a bulls roar of yours. I'm taking a passive electronic path.

Ring modulator , frequency doubler ,triplers and gunna have a crack at a sustainer.Making single pickups and all the other electronic bits are taking up all the time at the moment , but i've never had so much fun leaning over a bench!!!! Again fantastic job.
