My V-String

My instrument is called the "V-String". My dad helped me make it. My dad and I first found a picture of it on the internet. Then I drew a template and then dad and I drew it out. Then my dad and I made a bridge out of a gutter spike.

Dad and I painted the guitar when our mom was at the store getting some of the pieces that we needed. When the paint dried my dad and I put all of the hardware on. The only thing that we had to change was raising the bridge a little bit.

If I strum the strings softly, the dynamics are soft. If I strum the strings hard, the dynamics are louder. The pitch changes depending on where I put my fingers on the strings and how I tune the tuning keys.
