    Specs:
    -640 mm scale lenght
    -Beech 5 mm plywood body(4 inches/10 cm thick)
    -Beech nech with oak volute
    -Beech plywood fretboard with a black design
    -White glossy paint with blood splatters
    -Clear glossy finish

    It sounds good, as loud as a classical guitar but the intonation is a bit out(god I hate fix bridges), it's my first acoustic ever though...

    Definitely not a traditional build. Very unique, reminds me of music class in elementary school. We had flying v and explorer ukuleles. Guess they thought kids would play them if they looked cool.

    That's really cool! Any chance of a sound/video clip?
