    The Rent-a-Racer is a killer guitar Todd! I love the quack and it was set up perfectly. I am completely floored by it and am forever grateful! You and Z rock!!!

    Wow! That's been done incredibly well! When I saw the topic I was ready for some real tacky guitars. Boy was I in for a surprise!
    Hats off!

    I find them gimmicky, and I wouldn't own one, but they do look cool.

    I'm more of a traditional type, but they are very cool. My hat's off to you for your creativity and the ability to execute a concept extremely well!

    Here's my take. It's two 65 Mustangs both in 2004 Corvette Ultra silver.

    How exactly does this thing work?

    Edit: Nevermind I just looked one up online. It looks way more confusing than it actually is

    Very nice ....

    Who would'a thunk that the man who builds some of the most beautiful guitars on the planet goes for car-themed guitars

    I'm gonna keep my eyes open for some of this stuff and see what kind of trades I can work on one of Ron's guitars

    No, not mine. They made 25 for a promotional deal. They made the 11th one special. The tachometer goes up to 11 instead of 8 and the billiard ball on the gearshift has the number 11 on it instead of 8. You have to have seen the Spinal Tap movie to appreciate the 11 humor. I lay awake at night wondering where #11 is, sometimes. :bow:bow:bow

    In this picture, number 11 is on top. See how the shift knob is a different color? I know it's hard to see, but this is the only photo of #11 I could find. That is the color of a #11 billiard ball. The other two are black like an 8 ball.
