49 Ford Mercury  Guitar
Going beyond the limits of creativity, imagination and art.
Folks I give you the First creation of 2018.
Inspired by the Ford Mercury, an iconic car amongst the Kustom Kulture and Rockabilly Scene.
From an image off google to a wooden pattern
English Wheel and sand bag
Welding and Blending
C.N.C Engraved and Cut then polished Acrylic pickguard
Dice Inlay Neck
Front Grill and Bumper added
Custom designing a pickguard
The first design was in aluminium, but when it was painted it seem to hide some of the flame paintwork design
Final touches
C.N.C Engraved Truss rod cover
C.N.C Engraved neck plate
C.N.C Engraved rear access panel
This guitar has two blue Led Lights inside the body, and two led headlamps, the blue is awesome as it lights up the front grill and around the pickup surrounds and jackplate.
The paint work has flames that are outlined with real gold leaf. there is an incredible array of coloured fleck in this paintjob that these pictures do not do justice to.
The gold tonerider pickups are just the sound required for this hot rod.
this guitar would be valued at at least $8500.00 (if you were interested in buying it) I certainly have no intensions of making another one just yet. the paint alone is valued over $1200. and the amount of c.n.c engraving and detail in this guitar is incredible.
