You have to take some "action shots" of your sons in action with some of your creations...

Once again, a truly original design.

Specs

Really nothing special. I go the inexpensive route when I build prototypes. 25 1/2 scale , Basswood body, Maple neck , Tun-o-matic bridge & tailstop, Polished aluminum pieces front and back , Pickups are used from a Gibson Flying Vee, 3 way switch with 2 volume 1 tone. My sons band is playing in Barrie tomorrow. I hope he plays it . Thanks.

Wow! That is quite a guitar. It looks like something KISS would play.:rockon2:

So what are you dreaming up next? Your guitars are always imaginative and definitely original.

I hope your son loves it!:rockon:

Very cool and original design. I'd love to hear what it sounds like. I don't think it would be for me though because being as clumsy as I am I might poke an eye out.(LOL) Great work and can't wait to see #6

Very cool guitar! I'm not sure if the design was meant to sort of pay tribute to Les Paul's "The Log" in an Uber Metal version, but that's what my 1st impression was that was the direction you went in when you did the design.

The thing looks fantastic. Your son must be proud as hell to have it, and if he plays in a metal band; that thing is evil incarnate! What's the band name and their next gig? I'd love to hear that beast in action!

Just looked at your other builds. Love the doubleneck!! All very original. It's nice to see that you're not afraid to break free of the traditional designs. Well done!

Thanks for the comments,To be really honest with you , I've never heard of a Les Paul ,the Log. As for my sons band name ,I can't say because of legal matters with another band in california with the same sounding name but different spelling.I think they have no case but we are trademarking just in case.The band is playing The Foundation May 27th. They are headlining that night.I try to design something that no one else has done, or something over the top. With that said my next one is a Doubleneck Explorer.Thanks.
