This one is made from a handcarved rosewood box(not carved by me). I aged all the wood (not the box)with steelwool vinegar solution, and finished everything very smooth with fine steelwool and lineseed oil. This guitar has again a handle and leg support. I made my own volume knob that matches the leg support and bridge. I even made my own pickup for this one! It has about 7500 windings and sounds very nice and bright! The scale length is 22,75 inch I think, shorter and easy to play! I also love the woodflames on the neck and how it turned out aged. This is a special one but I think I will have to sell it soon because I just have too many guitars right now..

Thanks people!  It is not my intension to make a steampunk guitar.. this is just how I make them, and I agree that it almost looks like it, but in my opinion it looks better.. I think steampunk is often way too exaggerated for my taste..

Nice aged look. Has a look all it's own. Almost elven steampunk or something. Very unique.
