    I need to get back in the shop to work on my truck. During the quarantine, I've been screwing around with guitars instead. Did a quick refurb on this '61-'65 Kay N3 archtop. Needed some gluing, cleaning, etc. Sounds & plays pretty good.

    Also, had this no name Japanese solid body from the 60s. Best guess is a '66 Kawai, due to the body shape & the original pickup looked like one from an EKO (which Kawai was known to emulate), but it could easily be a Teisco. Pickup was not working, so added a P90 with a chrome cover. Looks like it belongs on the stainless pick guard. And, a cheap tremolo. Went the hot rod look with satin black & pinstriped by my buddy Johnny B Good.

    And, just for kicks, built this box guitar. I call it the "Lonestar."

    My dad gave my son his old Rick, it needs a complete overhaul...everything. This bass has been everywhere and it shows but it’s a family heirloom and it’s staying here.
