Ktwang Body Plan

My one-stringed wonder of a folk/punk/atonal/cartoon instrument, the glorious Ktwang, has a standard paint can for a resonator/body. In our 21st Century even junk from the hardware store is built by mighty robots, and a can is a fine resonator indeed.

This drawing shows how you attach the neck. A Ktwang is about the simplest string instrument you can build, and for a humble can on a stick it's been deliciously successful.
