The guitar, a Leisa style, number 4069 is called “Brainwaves” and was made to combine my luthier skills with the inspiring award winning artwork of Edward Hunter. The design on the front panel is a coloured visualisation of a real brainscan. The guitar is being auctioned at the Headway Charity Lunch taking place at the Dorchester Hotel in early December. The well know antiques expert Eric Knowles will be the auctioneer, and if anyone wishes to be involved, telephone or internet bids will be accepted up to 7th December. Further details of this can be had from Rachel Broughton (Headway Fund Raising Manager) on 0115 924 0800 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
“Brainwaves” is based on the Leisa style but with an ‘F-hole’ and Artec lipstick pick-up. The usual FSE-TN provides the superb electrics. The body is a spruce top with striking zebrano back and sides. The neck is maple and the headstock has a zebrano veneer. The machine heads are vintage style. More photos and details of this lovely instrument can be obtained from me on request.
