The minds over at Specimen Guitars are kind of nutty. Luthier Ian Schneller has built items like the Pac Man Guitar
and the Peanut Guitar
(you can guess what each look like). We think he's outdone himself with the ambitious Electric Lute
. Check out the website to read about why he built this creation and what went into it.
To make matters even cooler, Specimen also hosts the Chicago School of Guitar Making
, which hold lots of classes on things like setup and maintenance
and even a couple of amp building classes. We're sending Premier Guitar Editor in Chief Chris Burgess to their weekend Tube Amp Building seminar
to see what they're all about, so stay tuned for more from that trip.
