Uno

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.

DeLuxAcoustic

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.

GuiPhone

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.

Strado6

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.

NumberTwentyFive

...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.

MandoMiniBass

...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.

AC1STAVE4

...connect your iPhone and lay down some bass lines to go with everything you already licked on your guitar. You don't need an iPhone to run this rig though, it's ready play with or without one.

StaveTwin

...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.

de

It began with an old flat top guitar which had been played allot over the years, wearing down the fretboard a quite a bit betweeen the first six frets. I always love to have a guitar like that in my hands. It seems that these do a little more than a brand new one regardless of the quality.

After dismantling a Fender Mini-Deluxe, I trimmed it down and used the spaeaker grill panel to hold an oversized driver in place, with the magnet and speaker chassis protruding through the soundhole.

 

delI have since added some protective structure around the control panel on the back to make this a durable busker guitar that does not break down just because you don't bring it to the show in a case.

I really like the way the speaker vibrates the top and back of this old guitar. It was pretty unwieldy, in terms of feedback until I installed the vol. - tone pots. Now you can dial up a tone that is surprisingly loud and also mu8ch warmer that this little amp could ever make on it's own.

I was truly amazed when I brought it to the jam. This baby can hang with an electric bass and full kit drummer without being drown out by therhythm section.

The loudest acoustic guitar I ever had in my hands.

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 ...
