Handmade Retro "Batman" Guitar
The music man in my life, (Ed, my husband ) has been at it, again. This time he built this 4 string guitar. Finding the retro tin sign, of the first Batman comic, he quickly decided to build this little beauty!
The box measures 9" x 13" x 3" deep. The fret board is 25 1/2", and made of oak. He burned the fret marks in. He stained the box a nice rich dark color.
In this photo you can see the dark stain, rubbed away to show the grain of the wood. It works really well with the vintage sign.
He gave it to the Batman fan in the family, and hooking it up to an amp, our son played the theme song from the original Batman program. Ahhhh..it really rocks!
