Well, this'un is unique in execution, if not design.


I bought it from a buddy of mine who needed cash to finish up a recording. He'd previously lent the guitar to his son (also a gigging musician), who had "townshended" it pretty good.






The guitar is very "DIY"-- the seller put it together out of parts and made a toploader into a string-through with his handy-dandy hand-held drill (no ferrules!; since the body is soft basswood, he got out a tinsnips and crudely cut a metal plate to hold the string-ends, with 6 holes punched through for the strings, then dug an indent in the back of the guitar with a chisel to hold the plate!). I spent another $50 US replacing the nut and knobs and getting a setup, but now I have a playable guitar that I can literally drop to the floor onstage and only worry about denting the floor.




So unique, yes, pretty, no.

Here's my custom Schroeder guitar. All handmade. The top was carved with a hammer and chisel.



The neck looks like Brazilian Rosewood, but what is the main body wood?


That guitar would be perfect, if it just had matching wood control-cavity cover. Yeah, I know the difficulties involved in such a thing, but they just look so great.
