A 3 string Guitar style Gig Sticks tuned to D. All the Instruments available are hand made by me from FSC sourced timber. Included with the Instrument is a free protective bag, a strap and some picks. This Instrument is made from Wenge and Maple. Wenge has a very deep brown colour with light cream streaks, It is a very beautiful wood. The body has Maple bindings, a brass tail piece (also made by me) with a strap button. The sound hole is also finished with Maple. The neck is made from Maple and features a Rosewood fretboard with real mother of pearl inlay dots.
What is a Gig Stick?
The idea for my Gig Stick is a cross between a cigar box guitar and a Dulcimer. It has a fully fretted, full scale guitar style Chromatic neck and is tuned to D-a-d, but what does this mean? This means you have the flexibility of a normal guitar neck with the sound of one of my Stick Dulcimers (look at a Dulcimer neck you will see there are less frets) . Being tuned to a open D chord means it is a lot easy to play that a normal guitar. You can bar all 3 strings with one finger on any fret and it will sound correct. It can be used to play melodies and lead parts by playing individual strings as well as playing chords. It really is a versatile Instrument ideal for beginners or people looking for the next step on from a Stick Dulcimer and experienced musicians alike. Contact me for more info, I've run out of space!
