Kerry Kruger's HoundDog
Kerry designed this guitar as one of almost 200 digital designs he's made, but this is the first one built exactly to his specs. He made it intentionally slightly naively drawn, he said, "kind of Cajun backwoods style." The body is primavera (white mahogany with a darker grain-fill) with a flame maple cap and one-piece Indian rosewood neck set into the body, almost to the bridge. The guitar was designed for CNC by Kerry and built by Scott Platts and StoneTree guitars. The P-90s are Lollar pickups, 3% underwound at the neck and 5% overwound at the bridge, "so I can go clean and warm or searingly raunchy."
