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 which is old and also 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.

NumberTwentyFive

NumberTwentyFive gets it's name because I have said it so many times when people ask me how many of these I have made. I have been carrying this guitar with me on every commute for awhile now. It's such a functional delight and the tone is all it's own. Some experienced players have tried it out and they all get excited when they feel the vibrations as you rock the amp.

Its a worthy descendant of numro Uno in it's simplistic, single pick-up dsesign but all of the upgrades that I thought of while I crarried that one are included here.

I decided to set it up more like a traditional electric guitar, with a volume and tone before the amp. That way you can cut the feedback and tone down the glassy sound that these little amps are known for when you crank them loud.

Sometimes when I am playing this I wonder why I even need to go on inventing all of the other hairbrained schemes that I am working on because this one is so satisfying to play.

It is close brothers with the StaveTwin and when we tried them out together it is a joyful noise indeed.

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?"
