Jim Blackwell's Unconventional Instruments
"Blackwell built the hollowbody guitar on the left with a very thin, unbraced top. It is designed so the bridge and strings only interact with the center block and back. The Tele-style on the right is filled with concrete (as pictured). ""9.5 pounds and sustain for days,"" he says."
