thing 27: awful horsehair bow

Today my ebay order of mongolian horse hair arrived! So I made a fancy horsehair bow. It’s an awful bow, of course, and I have no idea how to use a bow anyway, but what the heck: here’s what it sounds like on the rotten stick tension guitar and the rotten stick electric guitar.

(I got to spend some time combing horse hair. Instrument making has more in common with My Little Pony than I knew!)
