put in your entry, you could pay only slightly more than others!  lets tally up the amount the parts costs, I`d say below $100.

the wild Indian guitar?

 

LAS CABRILLAS?  ^^

Nah, forget that silly Las Cabrillas guess.

Obviously, it's a Padron serie 1926!!   :D

Well, heck. If I had to guess, I'd say the guitar is a 3-string hard tail built over the course of  many long days, on a "Padron Serie 1926" cigar box that, like it's handmade bolt-on neck, looks vintage and beat up, but is actually smooth after many hours of painting and sanding and sanding and painting and painting and sanding, featuring hand-done art (old cigar art): Farmington Art Deco style lettering (actually a play on the Miller High Life beer logo ;) on its handmade "ARROWS AND TALONS" (time-consuming to make, but easy to install! ;) pickup, and has a handmade Telecaster-style bridge, brass screws for fret markers, hand-formed metal (probably brass) brackets, and its strings are accessed from the back of the guitar under a handmade metal plate, and it's played occasionally thru' a hacked Admiral portable radio/amp...

                                               but who's counting?? ^^ 

PS:

Did I mention that No albatrosses were harmed in the making of this handmade Tele-tone 3-string bridge guitar (a spin on the "Wild Indian" guitar but in brass) that's set up for bottleneck slide?  :D

One more time, and at risk of repeating some of what I said earlier...

I'd say it’s a (drop dead gorgeous!) all handmade right in the builder’s home, 3 string "hardtail" cigar box guitar- a spin on the Wild Indian guitar but in brass, built on a Padron Serie 1926" cigar box over the course of many long days, with a handmade bolt-on neck looks vintage and beat up, but is actually smooth after many hours of sanding and painting, etc., etc.. It features hand-done (old cigar) art: Farmington Art Deco style lettering on its handmade “ARROWS AND TALONS” (time-consuming to make, but easy to install!) pickup, a Tele-tone 3 string bridge, brass screws for fret markets, and it’s set up for bottleneck slide. (The metal work and hand-drawn pickup art are the result of many hours of work alone!)

I'm taking back my earlier assumption that the artwork on the pickup was a play on the Miller High Life beer logo, but I’m sticking to my guns on the statement that no albatrosses were harmed in the making of this incredible guitar!!
