We have special one-off projects from time to time.
Leslie speaker cabinet
One of my new projects is to create a Leslie speaker cabinet for one of my customers. As a starting point I have a Leslie unit from a dead organ. I have removed the Leslie unit, which has a Styrofoam wheel which turns over a small speaker. There is a small 115volt 60hz electric motor which turns the wheel. The first order of business is to replace the motor. I believe I had found a suitable replacement, which is almost identical in size and in shape. So, I’ll begin construction on the case next.
Electric acoustic with a 2" nut.....................................................
One of my customers wanted an acoustic electric guitar with a 2” nut. He wanted a steel string guitar, but with a nut width like that of a nylon acoustic. Since I don’t have all the jigs to build an acoustic guitar, I offered to make him a chambered electric guitar with an acoustic pickup.
