Like the Nintendo controller coffee tables Charles Lushear handmakes CNC-machine-free from local California woods, Celantano Woodworks out of North Carolina works similar magic on their handmade, wood-based, "You dream it, we build it" stringed instruments. The 3-string electric violin-guitar beauty pictured here has a rosewood fret board, maple body, and bridge, neck, and parts of ipa, aluminum, and steel. It also includes a handmade 3-string magnetic pickup.
All of Celantano Woodworks' guitars, violins, and Pac-Man and Jaws ukuleles are made to order. Note too that there is always a waiting list, so plan ahead for Shark Week, Comic-Con and your midsummer night's serenade of the girl in 4F this year. Special design requests are always welcome, as pretty much any idea can be converted to an instrument with one or more strings.
