Well, I was tired of being a shoddy songwriter and decided to do something about it! So I fired-up my favorite drawing and illustration program and got to work.

I wanted to do a non-kit build for the first time (and wanted to go fairly primitive), so I mostly just grabbed stuff I had lying around.
The body is a small (about 8x5) cigar box I picked up for 50 cents at a yard sale, painted green, and decoupaged a poker hand onto.
The neck is a piece of wood I pulled off a garbage pile. The bridge…Continue
