2 years ago, Mike and Athen set out to build a very special instrument. It was Mike’s dream to create a headless double-neck guitar/bass hybrid with room to mount his OP1 synth. It would be made from the floorboards of an old New Orleans house that Athen found: old-growth longleaf pine likely 100+ years old! After we lost Athen, we didn’t have the heart to continue. Now on a break from the road, Mike is finally picking it back up again, starting with these fully scaled and measured digital plans. Swipe through to see the progress so far.
