Hmm, it's elegant if you ignore the pointless extra holes drilled in the top and plugged with grommets, the preamp that does nothing and the big hunk of end-grain scrap wood secured with honking great screws through the back!

Oi! You're not allowed to advertise the work of this particular ... erm ... craftsman.

Still, it makes a change from butchered 7-string guitars.

Reckon this thing feeds back much?

You have to love the jaunty angle of the pickup. In bad light I daresay you could mistake this for a Thumb.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Does that apply to him or this instrument?

What was the reason for us not mentioning this master craftsman?

One day, we were ticking along nicely, reviewing his 'elegant work', then suddenly he was off limits
