This guitar was made in the end of 1997 and beginning of 1998. It has a special
story, this guitar. I made it because I was a little sick of all these nice looking
guitars with transparent colors, good looking grains and gold hardware. I found an
ugly green color and combined it with a very red turtle pickguard together with
white pickup covers. When it comes to the wood it is very serious made. The neck
is from an very old swedish maple plank I had in the stock pile and the body wood
came from a nice sounding piece of elmwood. The fretbord was made from bubinga mostly
because it looked so funny together with the green color.
In 2001 I put this guitar together with some other from my production in a Music store in Norrköping for some exhibition. After a couple of weeks I called the store manager and he told me that the green guitar was STOLEN!! It suprised me. The green one was the last one I thought should be stolen. Well the store paid me for the guitar but it didn't felt so good. Some month later I met a guy at a guitar show in Stockholm who showed me his new guitar. It was this green one. He had bought from a guy and all information he gave me leaded me and the Police to the guy who stole the guitar.
In the springtime 2011 I was offered this guitar back in a deal and I agreed. So here it is, a very very well sounding guitar in a nice color mix that I now think is not that ugly that I thought back then. It is quiet nice and I have polished it a little and made a good setup. The guitar is now ready to find another owner and give the world some good rock'n roll.
