Bloody Les Paulish Guitar

My pal Mark gave me a stripped to nothing but wood Roland Synth Guitar with a cracked neck and a ton of funky pickup routs.
I filled all the routs, stuck a bigsby clone on it and a few custom P-90's from my pal Clint at
It weighs a ton, and screams like a dying pig being eaten by a giant flying vampire bat.
I stripped it down to bare wood and added the bloody looking paint job using tinted shellac, and stabbed on a coat of nitro lacquer with a nasty old paint brush to make it look like dried blood.
I added some of my own blood by accident, too.
Sometimes you really get into your work in ways you don't expect.

Copperhead Road

Steve Earle - Copperhead Road

I fell in love with this dude when this song came out back in the 1980's.
Damn, he's dangerous and lovely in this video.
And the older and uglier he gets, the better his songs are, and the more I love him.
