I carved this guitar using Almendero (Almond wood) which is very common here where I live in Costa Rica…....I used mostly chisels and sandpaper…....The neck and electronics are Fender which I bought on Ebay….....

-- Let's see......what can I use this for?

David Savage wrote a book “Furniture with Soul” In it he said “Wow” is used to say “I wish I’d made that.” So ….”Wow”... I know I can never make that! Splendid!

You should send a portfolio of your work to well known guitar players! Hoping they sound as great as they look?
