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.


...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.


...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.

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. m

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!

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 ...
