I recently made a cbg where I took the top off and cut and painted it to look like a telecaster. I think it looks pretty cool. It has an under bridge piezo rod for a pick up. The fake pick ups are a piece of shaped aluminum and a piece of painted wood. Pick guard is a popcorn container from the dollar store. Has anyone else cut their top to some crazy shape? I'd love to see what others have done with their tops.
Gosh Daddy D - Took me a minute before I noticed the guitar!! ;-)
It took me a second to realize that the bottom of the box was still there. The contrast between the black and the blue hides it really well.
You can't go wrong with a pretty lady, a hot rod, and a CBG, eh?
I got the idea from this site I think. Someone posted a pic of a guitar shaped like a diamond, and the corners were the sound holes. Maybe I should use a longer neck next time :)
That is so cool. When I saw this before I thought it was just painted on. That is very "custom"! Great job.
