Galvo Bodies

Due to the lack of naturally occurring building materials available in vast areas of Australia, millions of houses, sheds. water tanks and fences are made from galvanised steel sheets (usually corrugated for strength). Galvanised iron, or Galvo, is now an integral part of the Australian landscape and it seemed natural (to me at least!) to try it in a resonator guitar.

The result is a truly awesome sound, very loud but with a surprisingly rounded tone. I should call it the Transcontinental guitar – genuine Aussie material, genuine Delta sound!
