Awesome! I can see why the stick is such a head turner. When I first looked I thought it might be a Chapman stick style of stick. The built in amp just be a lot of fun.

Cool , I like the stick too . Have fun with the acoustic build .

Very cool! I have been seriously thinking of trying my hand at this. I don’t play guitar but my son-in-law does and he has quite the collection. I thought something like this would make a nice gift. It is definitely on my to-do list at some point. btw, love your shop.

My design for an acoustic. I have a friend who is giving me some spruce planks for the build. The neck and various other woods I will have to order. I think the project will take me about a hundred hours. I plan to blog the build here. The hardest part will be to make jigs for the sides then heating the wood while wet over a pipe with a tiger torch as heat to start the bends. The rest is fairly common work for me.

Here’s a couple of the 20+ guitars I have made from scratch. The solid body is made from maple and birch laminated together and the neck is maple and rosewood. The stick looking guitar is a solid piece of Purple Heart, with birds eye maple for the frett board. It has a built in amplifier and speaker, as well a belt clip so it can be played while skateboarding. The stick as I call it sure turns heads, but only took 20 hours to build! If any one needs tips on building electric guitars just ask. As well I have drawn up a set of plans for an acoustic guitar as a future winter project, spruce and Purple Heart as I have a fair stock of well dried both. When I start I will follow along with pictures and a log.
