i change things a lot, often with little or no explanation.
for the past few years, i have been using this shape for the barnstormer…
but some of you may remember this as the original…
so this is the new version of the old one, which i like better than both.
particularly with the new bridge and pickup covers.
like the previous iteration, this one has a bolt on neck.
the body is made from sections of salvaged 2×4 beech barn rafters, with the edges hollowed out prior to gluing up.
the neck is walnut, with an osage orange fretboard.
homespun p90 pickups, brass compensated tailpiece, hipshot classic tuners.
oh, and a cute bug hole in the end by the strap button.
