    Woh....:eek:

    I think you've hit critical mass in your guitar designs. That looks like a comic book car from the 1940's that was designed to fly whilst the driver and passenger get it on while listening to Link Wray and suffering the effects of

    Incredible. John, your designs have always been interesting, but this one is a complete knockout. Probably. I'd know for sure if you put up more pictures for us.

    It looks the best in the partial image I posted first, but here's an other one of it full-length, but it doesn't show the paint's gloss like the first one.

    The knobs shown on it are not intended for this guitar, it will get custom made cream chickenheads...and it still doesn't have the name logo decal on the red tortoise elliptical headstock center piece...

    I prefer to use 'parsecs per hour' to measure this guitar's visual speed. It's just too bad that I can only play at about 20mph.
