Everything is still

Just Ducky when you lop off half the weight of the Les Paul®

What we are preserving

Is the pickup and bridge situation.
The rest of it sits more like a hollow-body guitar with an offset approach as a nod to the surf guitars of Fender®

When I had time...

during #stayhome
I followed a vision that I had to intersect the hollow-body Rubÿtone design with a traditional favorite of the solid-body electric guitar players. So I drew some lines and cut up another Les Paul® Some might think it a sin to defile a perfectly good guitar, but the fact is that I never had the guitar, I only had the body with some shitty pickups that needed to come out.

out of many, one.

E Pluribus Unum was once the motto of the United States of America and references the fact that the cohesive single nation was formed as the result of the thirteen smaller colonies joining together.
