Blind Hog's first license plate guitar. We are in love with it! It is a blues machine. Intonation perfect.

Uncle John. I did make the "rolling Pin" saddle. Made from a couple of wooden craft beads and an aluminum gutter spike.. They have some advantages, super cheap, easy to adjust height, just sand flats on the bottom until you get where you need.  The aluminum cuts super easy but is pretty darn rigid. They also give a little break from the nut and threaded rod on occasion.

LPG guitars are cool! This one looks great. Nice clean plate with room for the bridge and pickup.
