Hey Willard, cheers. Scale length on that one is 25 inches. I should confess here that the guitar isn't special - its all Steve!

Thanks for the kind words - cheers!

Yes - Steve's is No. 2.

Steve's an old friend of mine, and after I built the first hubcap for myself I thought Steve might like one - so I built the second (improved) one for him. When he started touring it I built an identical spare for him - No. 3. Its ready and waiting should he kill No. 2 - he often trashes his guitars into the drum kit!

He plays it on the title track of his most recent album -:

Here's Steve playing it on the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury 2010:

... and at the iTunes festival with John Paul Jones on bass in 2011:
