    It has a piezo pickup. The pickups are so inexpensive (about $1.50) that I put one in each of my builds.

    you should make one, seattle. You can pick up a cigar box at just about any cigar shop (they sell empties). A piece of 1 x 2 oak or poplar from Lowe's or Home Depot. A set of guitar strings, tuning machines and piezo pickup from Amazom. A few tools and some time in the garage. I don't believe i've ever spent more than $15.00 on a build.

    I do think it's interesting as is making any musical instrument.
