Due to the lack of naturally  occurring building materials available in vast areas of Australia,  millions of houses, sheds. water tanks and fences are made from galvanised  steel sheets (usually corrugated for strength). Galvanised  iron, or Galvo,  is  now  an integral part of the Australian landscape  and it seemed  natural (to me at least!) to try it in  a resonator guitar.

The result is a truly awesome sound, very loud but with a surprisingly rounded tone.  I should call it the Transcontinental guitar - genuine Aussie  material, genuine Delta sound!
