This guitar was an experiment. I received some literature from a company marketing photo-realistic surfaces on formica. The curly maple and mahogany were too compelling not to try.

The neck is from a bundle of N.O.S. Teisco necks. I made the pickup, the pickup ring, and the tailpiece.

The illusion was achieved and my curiosity satisfied. You can also chop vegetables on it, and it wipes down easily
