Starline Mickey

Workshop of Dmitry Poznysh / Starline Mickey

About the project

Initially, this guitar was conceived as one that may be transformed. In the kit there were two different-scale fingerboards made of different materials. The layout and fitting were done in such a way that it was enough to simply change one to the next without additional detuning according to the scale and height of the strings. This way you had a completely different tool in your hands.

But this happiness did not last long. Artist Daniel Ermolovich came to my workshop and explained that he really needed this instrument. He did not need two fingerboards, so he chose the most optimal one for his needs – made of rosewood with Gibson scale.

After some time, Daniil brought an updated guitar for tuning and in front of me appeared a painfully familiar Disney character.
