- electric guitars
Michael Williams bought his wife a new VW beetle, and at the time VW were bundling a First Act Garage Master guitar with each car . Michael found the Garage Master's strings were too close together for his arthritic hands so he set about making his own electric guitar. Williams designed the instrument to make it easier to play: its a single cutaway solid body electric with a shorter scale length with wider string spacing.
He carried on making more instruments in his garage, at a rate of around 1 per month (each taking an estimated 200 hours to complete) . He uses bolt on necks with a patent-applied-for dove-tail scarfe joint between the neck and headstick.Woods used are mahogany or cherry usually with carbon fiber reinforcement. Each one has a heart carved into the top of the headstock and is finished with 20 coats of varnish.
