#1513 road dog redesign

DSCN7358

this is the first of the new road dog series, which previously consisted of tele-shaped guitars with license plate pickguards~

starting over

so, my blog has suffered a catastrophic meltdown, which i have rendered irreparable by my attempts to fix it.
i still have all the pics and specs for most of the axes that were on it, and i will be assembling an archive of them, which i will add to my website.
anyway, as purging and rebooting seem to be a theme in my life recently, here are the beginnings of a new one….
