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.
Perfect for playing electric bass around the apartment.
Make a little money playing it in the stairwells and subway platforms. This one is the best sounding bass as of mid 2014. You are going to love the sound of this old student cello.

Acoustic guitar Pick-up
The hallowed f-holes combined with electric bass sound. It's a beautiful object to have around the apartment but it really shines when you get together with an acoustic guitar... or a Rubytone electric.
Every Rubytone is an auto- amplified electric. I have attempted the bass guitar many times, but none were as successful as this one. I looked at cellos for years, then one day I came rolling out of the workshop with this in hand. It did so well in a standard electric bass tuning, I went with a 130 and tuned it all the way down to B. This could be changed back to standard but I like the way it sorta auditions as a 5 string while maintaining a 4 string look.
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 ...
