Meet “Beltone”. Beltone is a "rescue" project. She was given to me, unplayable. Someone had cut a hole for a wall clock. She was outfitted with an antique door hinge tailpiece, and resonator fashioned from a stainless steel poached egg tin and silver trivet. New tuners and oak fretboard completed the build.
