Armageddon
This is a semi-hollow (chambered) body
2 quad rail humbuckers (each with it's own volume & tone control),
Multi switch for coil taps, etc.  The circles on the horn will be sound holes.
It will be white with a thin black pinstripe around the edge.
and a thin black pinstripe lightning bolt up top!  Black hardware.
(bridge, pup rings & knobs are only placed for reference and will probably change)

OK.  An update.  

Here goes:
I finished the chambers.  Made the sound holes.  
Cut the Neck pocket and mounted the neck.

Made center lines front and back. I'm still deciding where the knobs will go.  
Waiting on pups (quad rails) and bridge and pots before I drill.

                                                                   Another Update.  Here it is so far.
                                                                     It's almost finished being primered,
                                                                   and the hardware is layed on for the photo.
                                                                 The inside edges of the sound holes
                                                                 will be painted black and the chamber
                                                                 visable underneath is gold foil conducting tape.

Delta Box (available)


The Delta Box guitar is an 'Old Blues' inspired instrument.
Constructed of Poplar and Birch with a Burl Maple cap (not shown), it also boasts a double broomstick neck.
Tone is provided by two lipstick pickups.  It has a Rickenbacker bridge and a fancy brass tailpiece.
Each pickup has it's own volume and tone control topped with brass dome knobs.
The tuners, jack and strap pins are also brass.  Rounding out the hardware are brass corner protectors.

UPDATE

I added a curly Birch top.  She's almost ready to solder all the circuitry.

Stay Tuned!

The Delta Box guitar is about to embark on 'The Delta Box Blog Tour'.  It will be played by select guitarists across the USA.
Each artist will document their performance with stills, video and audio recordings and write a description of their part of the guitar's adventure.  After signing the back, the Delta Box will be shipped to another guitarist for the next leg of the journey.  
The entire adventure will be posted on this website.

Lap Steel


This is a new project.  Things could change anytime.  I like the Tele bridge (the Badass bridge is only there as a placeholder for a string retainer).  Right now an EMG and a dual rail humbucker are sitting on it, but I haven't made up my mind yet.

I do know it will be all black with black hardware.  Like all my projects, it will have metal pup rings and knobs.

Sorry for the poor quality pic.  Stay tuned!

La Aroma de Cuba
(available)

I'm still undecided on hardware.  Like most of my
Cigar Box Guitars, it will take on a life of its own
and I won't know what it will be until it's done.
Want it?  Maybe you have a box we can give a voice?
How about a Cookie Tin or Lunchbox or???

Taser
002 (available)
Waiting for a client to specify pickup & hardware
configuration and finish.  This one may have a pickguard.
Poplar and Oak body, great grain.  It could still be made a leftie!  Act fast...
