Guitar Engraving

Some of you saw the Maximo guitar I engraved a while back. And the pick guard (which had some failure points, both in measurement and durability) that I fixed this past week when I reengraved it.

So… we’re up to six done (well, six engraved, 4 complete build done), with 2 in the pipeline.

Start with the original Maximo guitar (new pickguard not installed, but photo included). Will update when I’m able to get Chris the pickguard and get a new picture. This guitar will get lots of pics taken, it’s intended as a promotional prop.

Next up, the Jamison guitar. Built speculatively, a buyer was found quickly. And liked it so much he ordered two more for his whiskey drinking buddies (Jack Daniels ad Woodford Reserve (not completed yet)).

Finally, the Rt 66 speculative build. Cheap sale body, made of Pawlonia (weighs nothing, soft like balsa, won’t do this again).

there are two more already engraved (Woodford and a TNT/High Explosives one that Chris is doing some manual “aging” to). and a Don Julio tequlia and a “greg needs to come up with a cool pattern to use his copper powder with” one.

OMG, that engraved pickguard is incredible!

These look fantastic! One of these days I’m going to work up the nerve to put one of my babies under the beam.

Buy a kit and engrave that one. Less fear of messing up something you already love.

One of my friends/colleagues met the guitarist from Led Zeppelin and got a guitar from him. Won a competition (for his playing…)
