'The Indian'

The 'Indian' is a three-string electro/acoustic guitar created from an Indian Tabac cigar box.  To add a little nostalgia to the build, I chose to embed Indianhead nickles in the headstock and tail stock.  The sound hole is cut in the form of an old arrowhead.  You'll notice that I have only fretted it in key locations for playing with a slide in open G tuning.  I fired it up this morning on my amp and it sounds pretty good, so I'm happy . . . it looks cool and sounds good, what more can a fella ask for?
