"Tin Pan Alley" 3-String Paint Can Resonator Guitar Kit
The "Tin Pan Alley" 3-String Paint Can Resonator Guitar sounds like the Deep South, circa 1928.
It delivers the iconic classic metallic, Delta Blues tone in an easy-to-assemble guitar kit.
Play it fretted or use a slide - the secret to the tone is the paint lid resonator.
It was a warm summer day when we were brainstorming ideas for new kits in the Gitty workshop, and we came to the conclusion that something was missing from our lineup.
Thus began our quest for an affordable, easy to build 3-string resonator guitar that can be built with simple hand tools - and we think we nailed it!
This kit utilizes a modified version our popular 8 1/2" x 11" Box Kit for the body, one of our 3-String Fully Fretted 25" Inch Scale Necks and a gallon-sized paint can lid.
As one of our "blank slate" style of kits - with an unfinished box and neck - how you personalize your "Tin Pan Alley" Resonator Guitar is up to you.
Painting, staining, decoupaging, wood-burning, inking... the possibilities are nearly endless.
Your "Tin Pan Alley" Resonator Guitar will be a piece of playable musical art!
