Didn't Gene Simmons have a bass like that?

Yeah Jim,
I copied The Gene Simmons Axe also.
Over the last couple of years making acoustic ukulele versions of famous guitars has been my hobby.
I’v made:
Jerry Garcia’s Tiger
Johnny Ramone’s Mosrite
Prince’s Cloud
Slash’s Mockingbird
Gene Simmons Axe
Lemmy’s Rickenbacker

I have quite a collection on my den walls.
Thank God I have an understanding wife.

Iíve been trying to think of what to make next. Iíve had a few ideas but ruled the out for the following reasons.
Brian Mayís Red- a company is manufacturing a version of it.
Lindsay Buckinghamís custm Guitar- a bunch of accusations of him physically abusing Stevie Nicks have come up and that kinda ruined him for me.
Buck Owens red white and blue guitar- just a nice paint job, not unique enough.

Iíd love to hear some of your ideas.

These are great! Love the ones you have done so far!

My recommendation for next build: ZZ Topís Spinning Fur. :-)
