I’ve had the pleasure to tour Finland a number of times but it’s been too long! Started thinking about a quick build I’d been wanting to try for fun… and of course about the cold and snow.
So I had two 1 Finmark coins and a Finnish 50 piece as well -decided due to an empty “International Coffee” tin, an extra piezo el-cheapo pickup and extra input layin’ around, WHY NOT make myself a Christmas canjo? I mean, simple 1 string slide guitar with a pickup, string tuned to a D and a 50 cent copper fitting as a slide, with my usual credit-card picks. YES!
Think “snow in beautiful Finland”, reindeer and such. Or at least the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where so many Finns settled and saunas abound -PLENTY OF ICE AND SNOW up dere too ya know??!
Now to record a song with it. This little git is likely to appear somewhere when I do a live show regardless of the weather 🙂
So she is 22 1/2 inches tip to tip, has no nut up top cuz no need when you string a one-stringer high like this one is… and from bridge to wingnut/eyebolt tuner has a 20 1/2 inch scale. Acoustic and electric she sounds sweet!
Hope you’re keeping warm in Nort’ America.
Enjoy these holidays everyone and as always, thanks for stopping by. -Glenn
