New instruments in the making

So with the Gig coming up on the 9th March at CICCIC in Taunton with Tim Hill and Matt Saunders so I have some new instruments to play and show off with.  
Firstly the Suitcase Instrument which features a handle for ease of carrying and aesthetic reasons of course

It also has more strings, a selection of shorter strings for the higher notes and then the longer strings for variation and distortion.

This was followed by the "Hand of God"  I got over excited at the sight of this articulated hand that has lain around my studio for years and that was that.  I also included some alabaster inserts picked from a beach local to me.  This has three strings and is tuned to GDG for an open blues sound, played with either a bow or using a bottleneck.
