Welcome to Ted's Mad Scientist Laboratory

I'm a luthier and inventor of weird instruments, pickups, mics, stompers and other gear for musicians, luthiers & CBG builders. I enjoy helping people build and repair their own instruments. I can make a custom guitar or pickup or other gear for you.

Visit TedCrocker.com to learn more.

See my interview in Modern Guitars Magazine!

Check out my Facebook page, MySpace page and Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters (CBG HQ)

Keith Urban playing his Crocker Honey Dripper guitar in concert!  

No band, just Keith and his Crocker...

Want one of your own?

From email with Keith:

"Ted, I looked on your web site and just fell in love with this guitar...  Can’t remember for the life of me how I stumbled upon the Honey Dripper but serendipity is a splendid thing.  Guitars like yours keep me connected with the basics, the simplicity, the earthiness and undeniable sexiness that is the electric guitar.  Yes, I have had a good play on the Honeydripper and it’s certainly got some serious mojo. I love it.  Cheers for now brother."

Hello again, Ted. No, I did not find a diagram that fit, so from my vast wealth of lack of knowledge and experience, I created one. Oh, and my profile picture has me sneaking up on an extra kitchen chair that's about to  have surgery, due to my need of a CBG neck. "Parts is Parts!"

Hello, Ted. I had a question when I joined and thus far the entire world wide web has not a single reference to any wiring diagram or comment about "in-bridge piezo disc with volume, on/off switch, neck humbucker with volume, on/off switch, and one mono jack". So, being the daring, foolhardy young man of questionable background that I am, I'm building it anyway. And after more research, I finally learned what a guitar "kill-switch" is,and does, it seemed like the perfect monkey wrench to throw in, so I'm putting one of those on build number five also. The separate on/off switches and volume pots should provide an infinite number of tones, and keep some digital distance between that snobby upper crust humbucker and his poor neighbor living under the bridge. The humbucker is my first home made pickup, loosely following the plans for a "flat boy" pickup. Although in comparison, I'd have to call mine a "fat boy" pickup.But in initial lab (studio apartment coffee table) testing, it Produced a richer tone than my Fender pups. Ever onward. A good day to you.  -David, a.k.a. the ConnMan.
