The theme of this piece might be about relationships - the center part with the vintage clothes pins and the buttons signifies the classic domestic situation, orderly and harmonious with nice colors, while the bottom part with the old metal strip and the skulls signifies what happens when the relationship is on the rocks....  rust, sharp edges and dead angry feelings.  The bridge sits right between them, with all the tension focused on this fulcrum point - which way will it go??  Sweet and soft, or loud and raucous - this guitar gives you all...

Then again, it all might mean something else....

Body and neck are Spanish Cedar, the fingerboard is Ebony, 26 3/4" scale (between standard and baritone - can be strung with .11's for a tighter feel and a deep and ringing low and midrange.  The inlays are colored bone set into aluminum rings.  The top is Sitka Spruce.  The neck pickup is a BoneTop P-90 style, the bridge pickup is fashioned from a 40's French hair clasp made of vintage celluloid (picked it up at the fleamarket in Paris).  Also a P-90 style construction. Both are wound by Harry Haeussel.

Bridge is TonePros adjustable, tuners are Schertler custom.   Small vintage bakelite knobs.  CTS pots 330K, with a 0.033 Orange Drop cap.
