Bill: Steal a bit of the old Spike Jones gag...a toilet seat with strings.
He called it the "Latrinophone" or in the Navy a "Headphone." You should use
the seat section, add a thin plywood back to make a sound chamber and
attached neck and add a pickup and you would have a sure fire "Chick Sale"
gag guitar.
Just a thought, but wouldn't it be the perfect accompaniment to the
trumpeter's version of "I can't get started"?
Your for best wishes at getting the pluck out of here,
Don Ingle
