Craig’s Guitar


It made a great stage guitar with the combination of piezo and magnetic pickups I had installed, and the ability to mix the two. I could create a partially accoustic and partially electric sound through an amplifier. Another strong point was its faithfullness to pitch when using very high barre chords or capo, something that many accoustic guitars do poorly. It got a good workout in The Wild Colonial Boys.
In the picture below a signature is visible at the top of the guitar's head (the other head isn't mine). This signature belonged to my grandfather, who died shortly after I was born. I never met him, but he was a keen woodworker, and I used his tools and workbench to make this guitar. Here's to you George!
