Custom made 12 string guitar. The design was suggested by the customer and we worked extensively over a period of weeks to create the final image. The customer wanted both characters to be "fat, fat, fat". He suggested the horn, which is a nice touch which I echoed in the headstock design. I copied the Rickenbacker alternating tuner style and used a nicely designed compact bridge/tailpiece which loads 6 strings through the body and 6 through the tailpiece. It has a nice classic chimey voice.
