While in the local Tractor Supply store before Christmas I saw these commemorative boxes of eight double decker chocolate Moon Pies and bought one. I told the lady cashier that I was going to make an electric guitar out of the box and winked. She laughed at that idea. Probably thought I wasn't serious (maybe a little crazy too).
Today, I took the guitar to show her, but she was not at work. I showed it to the cashier, who told me the manager would probably like to see it. He did, and wanted to take a couple of photos of it with me holding it. He said that he would show them to the lady cashier when she came in on Monday. Then he said that he would send the photos to the Tractor Supply company headquarters. A lady customer and husband were watching all of this and wanted to take a photo also. All of them had never seen anything like this and could hardly believe it sounded so good.
This is my first 4 string guitar, and is tuned like a six string acoustic guitar's four smaller strings (DGBE). 25" tuning length, strings from a Martin Light string set. 1/4" curly maple fret board, 1/8" padauk spacer layer,1/4" padauk tailpiece, Corian nut, Lexan bridge, red oak neck. The Lexan bridge lets the text show through so it isn't hidden too much. The heart tailpiece is my version of "Love them Moon Pies". The tuners and pre-wired pickup are from http://www.cbgitty.com
The single coil pickup requires a large hole in the neck that results in a very weakened neck where it is located. I made some internal design improvements that allows it to be stiff enough to make this guitar fully playable, not just a whimsical wall decoration piece. Sounds really good with a 25 watt amplifier. Needs no sound holes for good volume practice playing with no amp.
