In 2006 I bought a new Toyota Corolla. We’ll, old reliable encountered a deer at high speed not too long ago. Repairs would cost more than the car was worth, so time to move on. The car was great, reliable, great gas mileage, a daily commute, and one that had made major cross country trips. I wanted to find a way to commemorate my experience so I made my first license plate guitar. 24 inch scale. I thought I had another veggie steamer leaf for the tailpiece, turns out I didn’t. But I had picture hanging wire I twisted into the tail, working so far. Except for a tuner that broke a sprocket tooth it is a fitting remembrance.
