    Agreed, except the cost of the damn thing would break the bank, along with your back if the wife ever found out!!
    Prices I have seen today put it in excess of $5k!!

    It seems to be basically a sitar minus the drone strings, electrified.
    Project list:

    #1: FW Build 16/001: PBG EXA-1. Finish Coat Application/Electrickery
    #2: FrankenWashie Resurrection. Sanding & Pondering
    #3: FW Build 16/002: PBG SV-1. Oops. Back to sanding.
    #4: FW Build 16/003: The Cliché Black LP. Plugging and PUP rout inspection
    #5: FW Build 16/004: TLA-TH-TBA. First we measure, then we SAND!
    #X: FW Build 16/00Never.Ever.: Sea Foam Green KH1/MK2 with Disco Lights and Hipshot Bridge.
