Yeah, a little hilarious actually.

1~We are freeborn sprockets.
2~We each have our color, shade, and destiny.
3~We will not comply with the human plans.
4~We will not be subjugated, will not mesh.


PS, the gears are on their own, fuck them.

Here we have a bronze in the vein of that wood carving in post #137.

maybe it's one of those arty pieces that transforms into the image of a nakey woman when viewed from one particular angle.

Nice bench, looks like the hide is suspended, so it should be more comfortable, but that also means it might have to be replaced periodically.

A clutch of Camels?

They make it look so easy.

I don't think it is. One little mistake on any surface and the camel looks like crap.

A bad move on the lathe and you've got a Dromedary. ;)

There was a lot of thought that went into that piece.

But when they thought about it, they ended up going around in circles. :rolleyes:

OK, when you're sitting around with a full tummy, too stuffed to do much, whip out your jackknife and personalize your gitfiddle.
I'd guess it was carved then glued on, but that's only a guess.

Carved then glued back together, maybe, but you couldn't add a whole outer layer of wood to the body without completely fucking up the sound it made.

A little poking around..
Dude who made it is AR Nelson, and he's active on the Acoustic Guitar Forum.
He's got a huge thread that details the construction of the guitar, much like my band saw thread, but way more impressive.

And youtube video to show how it sounds.

...the triple sides are simply a lamination of 3 normal thickness sides bringing it to the .275" thickness that the back has. Backs and sides generally fall between .08 and .11 for me depending on the species and/or the stiffness of the specific pieces being bent. So, for this build, the back and sides are 3 times the total thickness of a normal build, but with all of the deep carving, and the species, it won't be much heavier than a normal mahogany guitar. All of the bracing and linings are spruce for this build to cut down on weight as well. Although the pieces are thicker, it doesn't necessarily mean that it will be less resonant. For electric guitars, more mass generally means more sustain. I have found this to also be true for the acoustics that I have built. The heavier guitars that I have built tend to be less punchy, but have more overall projection and sustain, which also creates more overtones. So, I would expect this build to react the same.
