I know they will creep some people out, but there’s no denying someone will remember an instrument with a bug on it. These are carved from red oak, with bone or rosewood saddles. Under saddle rod piezo transducers handle the pickup chores. Just the thing to spice up a cigar box guitar, ukulele or dulci strummer. So far I’ve done the wolf spider, the roach, the horsefly & the grasshopper. Not just another pretty face, these are a good sounding addition to an instrument build. Hope you like em’

These are eye catchers. Nice work.
