Hello,

I am just a vet now but was a grunt for eight years. Served in Korea and Mosul Iraq. I first learned of these instruments from a buddy from Kentucky. He told me about them and I thought he was joking, that there was no way this was possible. Well he was telling the truth I learned today. I owe you a beer JW, sorry. The rat rod/ mad max instruments are amazing. I don't know what else to say but thanks for the cool site.

Hi Jared,

Welcome to the Nation and thank you for your 8 years of service. If you think you would like one, we can probably fix you up.

Dan

That would be great, thank you.

Jared,

We don't know if it counts as rat rod, but we have a license plate guitar ready to go.  3 string, righty with an Illinois license plate conjuring up images of one of our many politicians singing the blues while doing time in the penitentiary.   It sounds and plays great.

If you'd like to have it, we'll continue with a Friend request and offline via CBN mail.

Thanks

That is beautiful. Thank you.

Jared,

Shipping Monday.  Enjoy!

Thanks
