Nicholas Gregory's Plattercaster
This is one of two scratch builds submitted by Gregory that incorporate engraved metal trays he found at thrift stores for the bridge, pickguard, and control plate. The guitar has a pine body, hard V neck profile with hand rubbed oil finish, and nitrocellulose lacquer. He says, "Everything started as blocks of wood in my small backyard shop."
