Tasmanian made 4 string

There is many builders of great homemade instruments Down Under these days, here is a super cool example of a galvanized steel guitar from Tasmania.

Bet you have never seen one of these before!

Check out that homemade pickup, now that is off the charts radical! I would love to watch the maker build this, there is lots to learn here, study the photos and try yourself, this instrument is a trendsetter!
