the Making of the guitar from start to finish:
This guitar was a fun one to build and came with its own unique set of challenges (that’s what makes it fun). Like many others, this guitar first came to life on a scrap sheet of paper during math class. I remember seeing the “Tiger”, the guitar played by Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead, for the first time and falling in love with the design. It was like nothing I had ever seen before and the image of it stuck with me for quite some time. A year or so later this design emerged. I wanted to borrow some of the cues from Garcia’s guitar and make them my own. I tried to keep it very edgy, aggressive, and indisputably rock, but give it a little more class. This guitar plays wonderfully, and the neck through gives it extremely long sustain (it will out ring a Les Paul any day of the week). With pickups as aggressive as the body, this thing really rocks.
