I have been looking at either buying one of these or possibly making one.

There us a guy that makes them quite reasonably "Bluesboy Jag".

Does anyone have any experience, I am interested in feed back or tips



Thanks Scoob

I think it would be fun to do-it-yourself and make one,but at the same time it wouldnt be cool to screw it up and be stuck with a peice of junk.I dont think there that expensive to buy one.There nothing really special as far as sound goes but definatly a cool little design and something neat to sh

I have seen them from $100 - $1800

They have that delta blues sound, about half only have painted on frets.
There are lots of videos on Youtube and other places. I have been looking for a resonator. I find these have that dirty old sound I like. I am looking at having a resonator type made with tooth pick frets, and a hand wound pickup in a Cohiba box.

Here is an example of one being played by the guy who will make it

Thanks for the input.
