Electric Viola
Now for something completely different...this is the first electric viola that I have made. Since that wasn't enough of a challenge to do correctly, I was thrown the added wrinkle of making it resemble Kurt Cobain's Jagstang. Overall, it was a surprising success. This was made for the drummer of Imagine Dragons, Daniel Platzman. To capture as full a tone as possible both a magnetic pickup and a piezo bridge were used. The extremely custom magnetic pickup was housed in a way to give it the traditional guitar pickup look. The tailpiece was shaped to resemble the original guitar bridge, as well as the handmade electronics cover and pickguard.
