Looking at other photos, the strap buttons are located:
Back of tip of lower horn.
Body side next to neck pickup.

WOW !!!

Where does one even begin when looking at such amazing instruments, and yes - that custom stool/instrument support combined with that 12 string most certainly makes for a very practical playing experience, especially with such a large instrument.

Nice find, thanks for posting 😉 

 

I always love how you can locate all these different unique tapping instruments, and this is stuff I would not otherwise even know about.

Cheers....

Just found a 3rd instrument so added it to the 1st post.

My obsession with guitar design has caused me to spend a lot of time searching for interesting luthiers.
