'The Grape'

I got a really cool cigar box, from my friend Ed, and I turned it into a nice-playing three-string,  electro/acoustic guitar.

There is nothing exceptional about the design, but I did make the tailpiece to look like the headstock.  The scarf neck is cherry with a piece of zebra wood laminated to it, and the fingerboard is maple with handset frets and a little grape cluster adornment at the end.  The nut and saddle are Corian -- geez, that stuff is nice to work with, and the final result is great. 

There are times when simple is better, and I think this is one of those times.
