GALLERY: Show Us Your Gear - Unique Instruments
February 2, 2011
Oddball, one-off, custom, and handmade guitars, amps, and effects
"The Weissenbaby (left) is handmade by Nick Carpenter of Wildwood Instruments in Australia. It has a single pickup and Mark says it sounds like a small Weissenborn-style lapsteel. The Starman (middle) was a garage sale find with a matching case. Mark says, ""The P-90s will tear your head off--ugly and dangerous."" Astroboy (right) has a speaker, effects loop, kill switch, and vintage Ibanez humbucker. It operates on a 9-volt battery, which Mark says sounds best when the battery is almost dead. ""Sounds great with bizarre tunings and a slide. A sick puppy,"" he says."
