Where nature and art meet!
The Gourdtar was made from a long-handle dipper gourd. I cut the gourd in half and to one half I made a fingerboard to fit. The fingerboard is made of ebony, rosewood and a center strip of poplar. The tuning pegs are made of ebony; the rosette and bridge are made of rosewood. The soundboard is made of maple. The frets and strings are authentic parts for classic guitars. This instrument is tunable, but according to a musicologist friend of mine, it is not playable.
