Old Washboards can be found online, or in junk shops. The 'board' tends to be glass or metal, and can be played with thimbles, banjo picks, drumsticks or brushes. I attached a piezo pickup (cost £1.09) to this one, and installed a mono guitar socket (£1.49 - Maplins Store) in an oldtobacco tin. The whole mechanism is easily removed, and trfansferred to another instrument, if required.
