Mongoose 7

About the project

“Many a mickle makes a muckle”

After many years of work in my workshop I found myself having a sufficient pile of quality wood scraps which I wouldn’t normally use for a full-fledged expensive project. So, there was an idea to make a guitar out of waste 🙂

A very nice top was assembled out of the remains of the melted flame maple and wenge. Then I attached a head to a pre-maid headless neck that I had; thus, a full neck was obtained. Remaining materials from fretboard inlays were enough for a modest markup. I also experimented a little with the shape of Blackmachine Guitars. The result is this stylish and concise instrument for heavy music.
