I spent the morning thinking about the new year, and I thought I’d post an image dump of a few designs I hope to get to this year. I know I haven’t finished this Pistolera I’ve been working on since June of 2021, but seeing how my first production prototype is proceeding to the finishing stage, I thought it would be prudent to plan ahead while I am inspired to make designs.
These drawings are just sketches and are subject to change. The headstocks, bridges and pickups are mostly cut and pasted from other drawings.
First, I have the Santo series guitar and bass. The Santo bass is a short scale. I actually have a half finished prototype in my garage, but I’ve already made improvements on the old design. I’m also thinking I could make a 6-string guitar version. The engineering challenge I want to give myself is to use some of the same tooling to build both instruments.
