Name: Swirled Surfer

This years Wildflower Festival Swirl guitar is all about fun in the sun. The body style and swirl paint colors evoke the vintage flavor of surf guitar music.

The Surfer Swirl Guitar is made up of walnut back with a maple core and top. The fretboard is a maple/rosewood combo that gives this guitar a look like no other (Except for it’s reverse twin: The Texas guitar). The pick is hand wound P-90 that gives it that surf tone.

The guitar was donated and auctioned off to raise money for a local charity.

LC Guitar

Attached are some images of my first guitar build! The body is made from African Mahogany and the side wings are Maple. The Side wings are removable so that you could easily change the style of the guitar. It uses a Schaller Hannes bridge, Schaller tuners and EMG pickups. I designed and built the guitar in the computer and made templates from the 3D data to construct the guitar.

If interested, you can learn more and see time laps videos of how it was made here.. http://www.instructa...Design-process/

I am entering this RockBeach CamelBack CB-III again because I have changed necks to an olivewood neck with a pistachio fingerboard. I have found olivewood to have a beautiful slick feel especially with Murdoch's Hard Oil for the finish which is also what the walnut topped and backed tulip poplar solid body (with a larger than standard pickup rout chamber) is finished with for a satin look. With this neck in place with a very snug fit and extra beef at the neck heel (which you cannot feel when you play it), this guitar resonates like a cigar boat! Seemingly all of the strings' energy is captured by the body which gives this guitar a thick yet Stratty tone to go with the spanky quack. Sustain is forever and it projects remarkably well acoustically. This neck is the Holy Grail in this guitar!!! I can build another, but this one is MINE! Scale length is 25.5" and controls are pure Strat. Yes, there is more wood around the outside of the pickguard and it does maintain my ergonomic design at the bottom of the guitar so it doesn't fall over if leaned against a wall or sofa or chair and also the output jack is located in the cutout so it will not come out especially if you use a right angle plug. The cutout also fits around the inside of the leg for a perfect classical seating position. Familiar traits while maintaining my trademark character.

Semi-hollow vixen

Who doesnt love some blue quilt? as over dont as this combo is I really like the way this one turned out and had fun making it. The carved top is solid quilted maple with creme binding, and the back and neck are both mahogany. fretboard and other wood appointments are EIR, the headstock veneers are quilted maple and the logo inlay is silver wire. its got two tones and a master volume coming off of two fralin pur paf's. The bridge is gotoh with an archtop style base and tailpiece, and the tuners are grover sta-tites. The blue stain is analine dye under the nitro finish. I'm going to put up some more photos on flickr of the carved heal, the back and neck, and just the guitar in general in the next day or so on flickr. these photos are kinda washed out and don't really show the figure or color very well, but they are all Ive got at the moment.

the new photos will be here when I get a chance to post them. http://www.flickr.com/photos/petersinstruments/
