Here's a new model I've been working on. It's a throwback to the old Vox and Teisco guitars. I really dig this shape. It will have two mini humbuckers with a volume control for each.

Thanks, Jerry. I'm always drawn to the weird little guitars.

Cool, Teardrop guitars are nice,. I had a couple of Vincent Bell Bellzouki's made by Danelectro, and they were fun guitars., sweet looking 3 string,.!!

Thanks for the positive comments. I'll post a couple of pics once I finish it.

I just read a book about old Japanese electric guitars. Tracing the roots of some of the manufacturers is very confusing. During some runs they might use two or three different manufacturers for the same model. I think a lot of those guitars didn't play all that great, but they sure had some cool looking models.

It looks very good.  Nice design and job.

Kawai was the Japanese manufacturer of these style guitars along with the half moon shaped models?

Kool, I had a 6 & 12 string with onboard effects, very Brian Jonesish :)
