A guitar that was situated around the look of the pickup.


I had a really nice looking orange pickup, so I built a guitar for it.

Orange combines the exuberance of red

and the happiness of yellow.
It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

What does the color orange say about you?

You are friendly, good-natured and a generally agreeable person.
You are assertive and determined rather than aggressive - having a personality color orange means you are more light-hearted and less intense than those who love red. You thrive on human social contact and social gatherings, bringing all types together.

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.
