so we have a collaboration between two designers
and we have categories
plus there is a statement on the home page via introduction
"A while ago, we decided that it was time to feature some new content on
this website. But given how we’re a two-person show, things don’t
always happen as quickly as we’d like - there are just always too many
fires burning at once!"
the idea that there are too many fires burning at once terrifies me - I used to live in a national forest that was prone to bush fires.
but what the heck, out of the frying pan and into the fire!
so let's go through the food groups
there is a lot to investigate here
the hollow headstock is something I want to talk about further
you have a bridge and tail piece that reminds me of a certain design and I am loathed to say "gypsy" or "jazz"
in my mind, the body suggests "jumbo"
look at it
who says the sound hole has to be anywhere but here?
I would say that this is an expansion on a theme
same shape but with a pickup
having said that - I am at a loss
there is probably a universe of difference
if I call this retro you have full permission to punch my head in. sure, bigsby and pretty standard looking humbuckers. does the shape have a certain function? the finish reminds me of certain lap steel guitars I collect. and they sound awesome.
it looks like a different version of the two previous body shapes.
the whole thing screams ergonomic
where are the strap holders? I see one....
let alone, where are the controls?
a guitar that has a stone top? let alone, where is the sound hole?
then there is one guitar that can be converted into many guitars.
I am just skimming the surface
the full story
the website is the best monument to so many amazing designs.
and why should I spoil all the fun?
