This handy device will give you an unlimited supply of picks, as well as a good way to destroy that credit card you maxed out buying your new Flying V.
Bill's blog. Writing, guitars, gratuitous Simpsons references, you'll find it all here. Almost certainly a waste of time for both you and the author. On the internet, that's actually a plus.
Here's the neck pocket I routed out. I'm not much of a luthier (or especially skilled in woodworking in general), so I was pretty scared I was going to wreck the whole project right here. It was far from flawless, but it's good enough. The neck sits pretty tight, too, if I shim it with some cardboard from a twelve-pack of Coke Zero. Now I can tell my wife my soda addiction is beneficial!

My new non-writing creative project.
I don't do anything fast except type, so it'll probably be a while before I'm done. It's a lot of fun to work on, though. I'll be sure to show the finished project when it's done. It might even be playable! (fingers crossed)
Blindworm Guitars presents The Mighty Kraken, "A fully acoustic and electric monster." My favorite bit is the swimming Kraken on the fretboard with its terrible eye denoting the twelfth fret. Its magnetic, piezo, and MIDI pickups make it perfect for a gig, the studio, or the high seas.

We truly live in the future. You can apparently just draw up a guitar on your computer machine, then presto! A magic box will dispense a guitar.
These 3D-printed guitars by Olaf Diegel are seriously cool. The Atom guitar (pictured) is "Inspired by oil coalescing on water in atom-like patterns, as seen under a microscope." I'm not crazy about the spider guitar, given that it glorifies the most horrifying creatures on the planet, but the idea of a machine spitting out a flawless guitar body automatically has me pretty fired up. I'd like to build a guitar myself, but the idea of a computer doing it for me appeals to my sense of music as well as to my laziness.
Hopefully someday soon they'll have a 3D-printed Flying V.
