I've always been in awe of the meeting of the two worlds of woodworking and music. To me, making something beautiful of wood that can then produce a beautiful sound is the highest level of the craft. When the instrument can be made visually beautiful it adds another dimension to it's beauty. The world of electric, solid-body guitars offers an opportunity cor the carver that some other instruments might limit. I have come across a number of photos on the internet of work done by some amazing carvers. Here are a few. I hope these inspire you as they do me.
