I think it's a great idea. I have been considering buying a Chiquita or similar. Do you have any plans on the looks, measurements etc?

That sounds like the answer to my nightmares. I am going backpacking for a month in a couple of weeks but without my Jem!!! Sacrelege

Not only could I play it through a pig nose but I could use it as a self defence axe!!! Sweet. :biggrin:

Would you be putting in a built-in speaker, headphone jack, or just standard output? *Maybe a sustainer? lol *

Good idea, how are you going to squeeze an Edge, Monkey Grip, and Lion's Claw on a backpacker? :rotf:

Maybe a tune-o-matic with fine tuners, and a PAF Pro. *You'd probably still want some kind of top-lock, maybe one that clamps all the stings at once.

I think this was already done... *I think Ed Wood did this and gave the guitar to Steve.
