I'd go with it.  It's kinda unique.  And if not unique, then it's distinctive.  So long as you have room to get amongst the switches.  (So not "hands like a murderer", as my Mum would have said...)

My Grandaughter asked me to build a stand for her little guitar. She wanted something small to sit on the floor so I came up with this. Guitar is surprisingly stable though I doubt I'll make one for a full sized axe

Getting very close to finishing my Red Special Tele -no Vol/Tone or jack plate yet as I'm waiting for parts. Sounds really different to everything else I have. Very honky midrange - probably the cheap Korean PU's ::) Rather jangly clean but with the right drive (MayQueen) sounds very Santana? Go figure!

Didn't want any screws or nuts on the front so took a Dremel to the PU lugs then made brackets so I could adjust height round the back. First one I've French polished. That took me 3 weeks and countless attempts >:( Lots of mistakes, most of them fixed

Thanks Marc but it really doesnít stand up to close examination. That makes it unsellable so Iíll just have to keep it.

Seems that my local junk/antiques/house clearance store only has one price for guitars. This week, stumbled on a mint Ibanez Mikro for £30 inc quality gig bag and Strap. Sounds and plays like a full size. My granddaughter will love it  :)

If anyone likes nice wood, you might like to check out these slabs. I got to see them in the flesh and they look awesome

What a gorgeous piece of wood.  Thank goodness someone else didn't get to it first and turn it into a coffee table.  :icon_eek:

Scratch builds from the past several years.  Lost my password on an old computer, finally found it and got logged in, haha.







Started selling these at the local music store, which worked out fairly well during the pandemic induced ponzi globalism supply side warflation crisis, ha ha....
