This was built by a guy on the Aussie hot rod site I am on, thought people would dig it. I love it myself, not 100% tiki, but 100% kool!
I was asked to build a guitar for a display at the Australian Surf Museum down in Torquay. I made it from Jellatong with a myrtle stringer down the guts. It weighs virtually nothing,but has a lot of sustain and tone.
It's played lap style. Theres a single Danelectro lipstick tube pick up under the chrome cover.
It's the first completely scratchbuilt guitar I've done for seven years, It got me off my arse and back into building,which is cool.
I'm building a couple more at the moment,one to keep and the other for a mate. The one I'm keeping will be getting pinstriped. The other will get Hawiian style stencils of palm trees and stuff.
I'm doing a Tele style thing and a 57 LP junior copy as well.
