50 very unique builds! Some of them are just purely refreshing and innovative all of them are classic Ted. I hope this undertaking catches the eyes of other investors/bizz owners and opens up a steady stream of cash flow for Crocker Inc. Somebody call the Hard Rock!!!!

Lap, it was pretty much 24/7, and the most intense rush of creativity that I wish I had every morning these days.  Some days 2 serious ones, some days 7 simple ones.  All tunable and playable, I could have wimped out, but I don't make wall hangers (although these were wall hangers).  All had real tuners and strings.  All were unique, none (exactly) the same.  I did mass produce necks, nuts and bridges and had kinda an assembly line set up.  It was a blast to come up with something different for each build.

Besides creating sawdust and cool instruments all day, I brought them into my photo studio at night then posted those pics.  Then get up in the morning and create a few more.  Rinse & Repeat...  I never knew what I'd make until the end of the day when they were made.  Gotta love it!

PURE IMAGINATION PRESSURE EVERY MORNING, PURE ADRENALINE ALL DAY!

WHAT A RUSH!!!!!

Here's about half of them on display
