Indian Corn Guitar

This guitar was commissioned in the spirit of Eric Clapton's "The Fool" psychedelic guitar, which he played back in his Cream days.

I didn't want to literally copy that motif and my client encouraged me to create my own interpretation. So what we have here is more of a Native American psychedelia as opposed to that London scene from the 60s. I like to think of this as Americana camouflage useful for keeping a low profile in farm country.

This guitar is constructed the same as my Silvertone-style guitars.

Other Silvertone-style Specimens include the Schnellercaster Custom, Silvertone Tele, Silvertone Maxwell, Rendition 1457 Guitar & Bass, Andrew Bird Maxwell, and BJQ Pippin
