New Project

I've been busy lately working on the design for a guitar which is a tribute to the late Dale Earnhardt.  So, the absence of posts here on the blog.

The guitar is an electric ordered by my old friend Bruce (yes, I do mean old, like in elderly, grizzled, vintage, time-worn, run down and worn out), who has developed a Nascar fetish . . . this has replaced the foot fetish he had years ago.  He says he plans to auction it to support a Nascar fantacy league he runs, but I think he will keep it for himself.

Without giving away too many secret details, before the job is finished, delivered, and photos posted here, it is a six-string built using a Tatuaje cigar box as the body (thanks to Jennifer in Houston for supplying the box), a Fender Strat neck via a guy in Georgia, and various parts from Toronto.  It is coming along nicely, and a lot of fun to create, even though the design has been a pain in the ass.  But, you should be seeing photos in a couple weeks.
