Eastern dragon guitar by Dans-Magic Eastern dragon guitar by Dans-Magic
Custom guitar carving.

I upcycled an old beat up fender guitar.. sanded off the fiberglass and then carved this. I didn't know at the time that it wasn't a solid body (hence the difference in stain in areas) so next time Ill just be using a fresh solid body.

This is my very first guitar carving. :iconpencil-chewer: drew it on the body and I carved it. My daughter :iconwinged-creations: took the photos. So we all had a part in it :)

Wait... you did all these guitars and I never noticed? Wow, I really am a burnout...

I thought I'd never get another guitar again (there's... history) but I recently did, by complete surprise, and what a guitar too... a Washburn acoustic-electric with an XLR AND a 1/4in jack. It sounded like my first guitar but would not stay in tune, I did everything I could that I knew of in terms of setup, and I am fairly certain it is beyond my repair skills as I never had to do anything but re-fret hollow-bodies, the internal structure seems to have separated from the top, the whole thing feels floppy and I really don't have anyone to go to for advice. I have a fairly large chunk of well cured mahogany, I was thinking of somehow adapting the neck (it looks set but it does have a truss rod), putting a string through body bridge on it and the transducers from the washburn. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions? Sorry about the wall of text.
