'Plum Crazy' -- #25

A six-string Fender Squier neck attached to a Tatuaje cigar box, which I painted purple.  These are some of the most simple creations, in that the box itself is large enough and so solidly built that it is great for an electric guitar, especially when oak reinforcing pieces are added to hold the neck and bridge in place.  This adds just enough weight to offset the weight of the neck, and the balance feels so good when it is played.  The pickup, neck plate, strap holder buttons,  and jack plate  are from a supplier in Ontarion, Canada; strings from GuitarFetish; neck with tuners and string trees off eBay; a custom made string cover and hand brushed pinstripes by the old guy who built this rig, me.

Damn, this is a fun hobby.
