New Cronk Guitar



So I got the first six string Cronk guitar prototype and it turned out great! I got to help build it and did the fretwork myself. The wiring is being done right now... I have learned alot about how guitars are made. I have even more respect for guys like Bryan and Zachary who make guitars all by hand like this. You can check out more pics and guitars on Bryan Cronks website. www.cronkguitars.com

No doubt. Let's see the picture without the dumb guitar.

Also, Dino, does this mean Zachary loathes you now? Isn't his thing that he abhors guitar collectors and aren't you the one who was ranting about how his guitars are so great? Or do we have to suffer through these kind of ramblings for every new guitar you get? (but...if you post the picture without the guitar, all is forgiven)

Re: New Cronk Guitar

I suddenly find that I can stand the sight of guitars.

At least, tell that person to RAISE the guitar about 5 inches.

I just noticed the guitar...

Is it still considered a guitar without a Floyd?

LOL, I still like my Zach's. Bryan Cronk is a friend who just moved here from Washington. He has been building bass guitars for some time but this is the first regular six string.

If you guys like that picture you should look at the website. My wife won't let me near any of these photo shoots! I'm lucky to still be allowed to have the guitar after that picture.

Hmm. I don't know if the guitars are any good, but the ladies on the site look like they would "play" pretty good.
