Could this be FLOATING ART

I've had several people tell me they would be scared to put it in the water because they might scratch it. I tell them I built it to scratch. See More

"Thanks Ted, I dropped by the tobacco shop today and they have the guitar front and center on the top shelf right under a large 10 point white tail. They said they have had lots of great comments on it. I was really proud to see it on that shelf."
