I still need to cut the sound holes. I haven't bought a hole saw yet.
Only the finest hose clamps go on a Diddley Bow made by Hank Greer.
Cheap bits of old hardware work well for the bridge and to anchor the string.
Needed a guide screw to keep the string centered over the nut, i.e., hose clamp.
I cut away part of the rod to create a flat surface to mount the tuner.
It's 25 inches from bridge to nut so marking the frets is the same as a standard guitar.
