If you play guitar and love art you might buy a Cruzcaster. Well my brother doesn't play guitar but loves art, so he bought one. He asked a long time ago about having one built with a plate from 1949 when he was born. The license plate idea was decided against because he liked the copper since our dad found it at the airport years ago. The only thing left of the plate he had been keeping was the 1949 and it seemed to fall into place below the pickguard. Another nice touch was the nails. He gave me a bag of copper nails and wanted something done with them. I cut them all off short and peaned them from the back, like an old school rivet. I had to drill holes in the body where every rivet protruded from the back of the guard. After putting it in place I thought it would look bad to interrupt the flow of the rivets by using a screw to hold the pickguard in place so I ended up actually nailing it in place instead. Well, that wasn't enough, we took the bridge in to have the chrome stripped off and I acid etched the copper. How about the shell casing found on the beach in SIdney for the three way switch. Okay. That's enough Now that he has the beauty he has decided to buy a small tube amp with reverb and is going to learn to make some nice "toneful" music. Have fun Stu.
