Funny looking for sure, but this is the work of a guy who really thinks about how a guitar can be, why and why not. There are a very small number of reasons why most guitars look as they do and the main one is usually, “because that’s how they’ve always been”. 

It’s time to put that one to sleep.

Odelia’s Fireman - A light korina body capped with amazing quilted maple. The neck is maple and bubinga capped with rosewood and agoya pearl inlays. DiMarzio Air Classic humbuckers and Area ‘67 middle pickup, as per Paul Gilbert’s preference. Ibanez and Gotoh shiny bits, just like Señor Pablo’s original.

Customworks Tele - rebuild from an earlier Radian with a mahogany neck and lots of gold Gotoh bling. The one-piece sapele body makes it a sustain machine and the mahogany neck softens the tone up compared to the maple neck it previously had. Great guitar!

Radian Lavender Tele - Korina body, DiMarzio Super Distortion P90, CSP P90, Gotoh SG381 tuners, Maple Modern neck (22 jumbo frets, 12” radius). Full price would normally be $1750, but I’m in a haggling mood, so make an offer during the next week :D

I like to do a bit of slingshot shooting on a thundery, rainy night like this (or other nights when work seems like too much work). Chopping a beer can in half in ten shots, slicing a playing card edge-on or lighting a match from ten metres away are the classic benchmark targets.

I also like to make and sell slingshots to like-minded individuals.

Here are a few of the latest batch of the more simple varieties. AshCat models Fury, Wasp, Wasp and Hurricane. Unnecessarily fancy is the usual modus operandi, but simple gets the job done all the same.
