Here is another one that is not completely serious but turned out to be a serious player.. I have really learned to love Leo Fender more than I ever knew I would after carrying this around the city.
I had a nice Jackson neck with a broken headstock and I was planning to make a pee-wee bass guitar out of it since there was enough headstock left for 4 tuning machines.
So, I was digging through all of my collection of parts, looking for some spare tuners to throw on there when I came accross the broken Taylor, sheared right at the truss rod access hole just like the way Gibsons break off. It was too good to pass up.
To carry the Frankenstien theme through the body, I went with a Telecaster style control plate and mounted the amp behind a neck mounting plate. To keep the theme going even further, I used the telecaster neck pick-up and a lipstick in the middle.
...yer lookin' at the product from a guy who don't care for tremolos at all. I'm a hrdtail guy all the way. If you sense that something looks "off" that because everything is "off". Notice where the stop-tail is mounted right on the ithsmus between the tremolo route and the bridge pick-up route. The body was designed for a 21 fret neck but the Jackson is 24. It's sorta like offsetting penalties. I love playing this guitar and I am so glad that it never became a bass. Wide flat shredder necks all the way!
