This is not the first guitar that I built, but the one that got me back to building guitars again. I built it so I could simplify the process of transporting a 6-string on an airplane, but it has gone allot further than I imagined.
This is an example of one of those rare times when your project falls down in front of you like a slave to your every whim at every step along the way. Not only does it sound better than I ever imagined, it is also much louder than any of the others that I have made.
This is a Karaoke machine-boombox, iPhone charger, recording studio, speakerphone which you can also play guitar on. Garageband for the iPhone is an endless possibility when you have your guitar in your hands and some time to kill.
There is something about an old violin. Anything old that has f-holes has mojo that you can't find anywhere else. The tone that this one has is definitely all it's own and if you know of a lighter electric guitar, please send me a picture of it.
...referred to it as such so many times when people ask me how many of these I have made, decided to name it that. Carrying this guitar with me on every commute for awhile now. Such a functional delight and the tone is Complex and rich. Even experienced players who have tried it out got excited when they felt the vibrations as you rock the amp.
...can't imagine how I could have put so much work into this little thing already and still not finished with it. I used two pineapple cans and a Ukulele neck with the Pringles Speaker to bring the noise. Cello strings round out the list of oddities.
...brother to the one I refer to as NumberTwentyFive, this guitar also has noiseless pick-ups and a switch. Maybe I will have the coils tapped in these rails next time I see you. These new Fender Mini-Twins sure look nice with the tweed cover and the brown speaker grill cloth.
This was one of two projects that I expected to complete in my final semester at UWO. That was a bit ambitious. I eventually finished it after I had moved to CA. The original design was a double neck, I split them up and finished the six string side. The other neck has a 12-string bridge and 8 tuners.
I was winging it as I sculpted the headstock. All of a sudden it began to look like an ear, so I went with it becasue I play by ear.
Myself and others played this in the band. It's real easy to get the hang of a lap-steel but hard to master.
People always ask me questions like, " How much is this one?", "Do you sell these?" Did you get a petent on that?", "What do you call that?"
... this space will grow as I add more information ...
