  • Guitar Of The Month - November 2014

    @Renkenstein, "Renk - Siren Prototype"

    "This was my first completed build. I started it in March after shelving an LP copy build I had botched. Just over a year ago I moved into a place that had room for a shop. I immediately hit the flea markets to equip myself for my life's quest of building guitars. I was reluctant to buy high quality timber for this build, so I worked with what I had on hand, which was some odd dimension mahogany and a maple offcut that could hardly even be described as figured. Where she falls short in looks, she makes up for in playability and sound. I had the pleasure of playing her onstage at a local jam show, and received rave reviews. It was a proud moment in my life.

    "Since these pictures were taken, I added a 3 way toggle between the 2 volume knobs, which can be seen in the final pic.
