    The inspiration for my 12 string was an old KayKraft Venetian. Almost all my guitars are original designs to some degree or other...Even when I build a tele I change a little something so it won't be a copy. I get the most fun experimenting with different wood combinations and I like to be different, but not TOO different.

    Back last year when I completed design tech for year 12, i thought it would be cool to make a double sided guitar. Well, i made it, both sides worked, but obviously it was impractical :( This was the first guitar i ever made, impractical but whatever!!
