A FilterTron and a P-90, not a bad combo. How about a few close up pics of the body.

Are the sides really made from woven strips of bent wood? Or is that just the finish?

Another very cool effort Brian! Very interesting f-hole design. Being bound highlights them nicely. I like this latest creation.

Is your reason for doing this (woven strips of wood) merely aesthetics? Or do you perceive there to be some tonal differences?

Just wanted to try something that I never seen before

12

Those strips being black, gives the impression they're leather! Unintended consequences but very cool!

13

I think your work is brilliant.

14

Both are very cool. I really like the Falconish one. Conservative/traditional yet the added flair really sets it off.

15

I'm surprised some hipster rock star hasn't found your work. Great stuff.

Thanks for sharing your video.

Let me ask my question another way: Do you perceive any sonic or tonal differences between your guitar with woven sides and a similar standard Gretsch model that you attribute to the woven sides?

I’m not a real expert on sounds but to me it sounds really good I believe that a good amp is what helps as well

So whats the reasoning with the Pickup being so close to the bridge? Im a complete know nothing guitar builder but figured I'd ask.

That's honest!

I really like those woven sides. That could really catch on. Nice builds, Brian.

22

How do the woven sides affect structural strength and tone?

24

Great work ! They really look nice and comfy too !
