I made a one string version of one of these. Most of the videos that Isaw on YouTube of them people play them on their laps and hit the string with a drumstick or something similar .I was just curious if that's how you play yours.

There's a guy in St. Augustine, FL that sells these for fifty or sixty bucks at flea markets and street sales! Nice profit margin, eh?

Nice, but can you leave your chewing gum on it overnight?

Oh, we definitely need a more detailed, step-by-step of how you did this!

Yes, more documentation please!
Also, what makes it electric? I didn't see any pickups, are they hidden inside the bedpost?
