If I  use newspaper and clear epoxy to laminate a resonator for my Bart Reiter openback, it would then be  a - - - - -

PAPER-BACK REITER! REITER! REITER!!

Listen, Sir, or Madam, this is my new song,

Less than seven verses, so it's not too ong!

And the woman in it dies before the end, so you know it must be real BLUEGRASS, friend!

Paper-back Reiter!

That's so bad it's good.

Of course, now you have to make such an instrument and record the song.

According to his profile he lives in Wisconsin, not Machetouche.  Different time zone and everything.

I have the banjo. Bart Reiter made it.

I can make the resonator.

The song is very simple, as chord progressions go.

I'll have to wait until Sunday to begin making the resonator, as it is the thickest edition, with the brightly colored cartoon pages.

It would be less likely to become a weapon in the wrong hands than say, a Gibson Mastertone. As long as you do not go too heavy on the epoxy.

When newspapers finally disappear altogether, will we be making smart-phone mache?

Mike,

I believe you have outdone yourself—when I saw the thread, I was thinking Torres' papier mache guitar, but when I read your post it was was much better.  We need this!

I have been spraining my brain trying to think of a similar thing—what about the Rolling Stones—
"Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
Here comes your nineteenth bluegrass breakdown"

Keep up the good work! (and I must ask the old timer, what's the first worst pun?)

I also kinda like the idea of a Terminator destroying Reiter paper mache resonator player. Would that person be a Reiter Terminator Machenator, an RTM? (I'll have to rely on someone with better image manipulation skills for the picture)

Mike - see what Ye hath wrought?

Ironically, if I have wrought anything, I may have wrought irony.

Anybody ever make a wrought iron banjo?

Technical information:
The resonator is simply resting on the banjo, and is merely strips of newsprint, glued to a thin cardboard circle.

The banjo was not actually modified at all, since it was built so well by Mr. Reiter, needs no improvement.
