Electric guitars

Once again, my building cravings often come from recognized shapes.

 

However, for musicians, I rarely and barely build a guitar with specs already existing on a series model. Well, it can happen but I always try to "customize" or "reinterpret" a bit so as to build the guitar that nobody else will have...
