Alligator Guitar

Rhinehart of Athens, Ohio sculpts and paints beautifully eccentric but fully functional guitars. Many are shaped like fish, the rear ends of horses, birds and dragons. This alligator is a lap steel guitar:

Modeled on the Fender 8-string Stringmaster and Deluxe steels featuring 2 pickups with volume, tone, and blend for dialing in the perfect tone for any mix. The pickups are handwound with reverse polarity to create a humbucking effect when both are balanced. These are very sweet sounding instruments and great looking as well. Gotoh tuners for smooth and accurate tuning.

#3 is an 8 string model with Gotoh tuners, 2 reverse-wound-reverse polarity pickups from United Luthierie. Stanless steel nut and aluminum bridge/tailpiece. Volume, tone, and blend controls. Carved from 3 pieces of Douglas fur for light weight and rich tone. Hand-painted fingerboard.
