Quick let's throw together a Les Paul styled guitar, it will be simple, we have most of the parts and the wood, says my imagination. Sigh... 10 months later, several minor plan changes and lots of work to go. Ok, someday I will get this guitar done. 

I am trying several new things and you can see them in this picture. The Hard Rocker will be a clamshell body with no control cavities covers or neck plate/screws visible. The entire back will pop off, well hopefully easy. I am testing out some really strong N52 neodymium magnets for securing the back of the guitar. I am also trying some thin black laminate layers between the body layers.

Oh, I got a great idea... let's make it an archtop guitar. Yes, I listened to my imagination again. Tune in next week.
