    This was a Scatter Lee classic guitar from the guy that showed us all how to be more creative than we thought we could be. I have to make one of those necks!

    Congrats!

    Thanks everyone, i really did not expect to place this year, tuff to top last year, just built with what i had and what i thought would be a cool guitar, i want to start a new build now but not sure what it will be


    i was eating your dust all week of the voting, was like watching a slow horse race

    well now you have a reference guitar, i always have to go back to old builds to measure depths and double check stuff


    i'm off to stew mac to do some shopping,



    :cool:

    too many pages to wade through. Where did this guitar end up? Ebay? Buyer already spec'd?

    :D

    No, but I thought it might be good inspiration for next year. Forget skinning the gator, just string it up!

    But if ya wanna see ugly (and this is entirely IMHO, natch) check out the other guitars at that link :eek:

    I thought the sculptures were kinda cool, but there doesn't seem to be any reason for them to be guitars....
