FREE PLANS: Build This Electric Banjo

I've said it before and I'll say it again:  "God bless the mad scientist feature writers who wrote for science magazines!"  I'm always discovering more experimental instrument plans as I dig deep into guitarcheology.  Today's discovery is a set of plans for building an electric banjo, taken from Popular Mechanics, October 1970.

 

The author calls for a completely handmade pickup, but you can easily use a store bought pickup.  (I'd suggest a rail type of guitar pickup to circumvent any problems with string spacing.

Here's the plans.  Download and enjoy.  Send me pics if you're crazy enough to build this...
