Welcome to Ted's Mad Scientist Laboratory

I'm a luthier and inventor of weird instruments, pickups, mics, stompers and other gear for musicians, luthiers & CBG builders. I enjoy helping people build and repair their own instruments. I can make a custom guitar or pickup or other gear for you.

Visit TedCrocker.com to learn more.

See my interview in Modern Guitars Magazine!

Check out my Facebook page, MySpace page and Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters (CBG HQ)

Keith Urban playing his Crocker Honey Dripper guitar in concert!  

No band, just Keith and his Crocker...

Want one of your own?

From email with Keith:

"Ted, I looked on your web site and just fell in love with this guitar...  Can’t remember for the life of me how I stumbled upon the Honey Dripper but serendipity is a splendid thing.  Guitars like yours keep me connected with the basics, the simplicity, the earthiness and undeniable sexiness that is the electric guitar.  Yes, I have had a good play on the Honeydripper and it’s certainly got some serious mojo. I love it.  Cheers for now brother."

Thanks for the welcome back. I do have a question that kind of prompted my desire to rejoin. I am going to put together a fuel tank bass. Upright position of course. And I have never done that before. There doesn't seem to be much info easily accessible online. I am just curious about a good solid way to attach the neck. I think I have a good plan for everything else. I am considering using an Ebay 3/4 size stand-up bass neck.

Do you know of plans, or maybe someone who chronicled a build that is out there for me to view?

Thank you in advance for any info/advice you might have.

Colin
