Ted Crocker: Guitars & Gear

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."

Some of my weird creations:

Ask me about my hand crafted gear for builders or visit my eBay store to see everything currently available. I can customize anything you need, just ask!

Hey Ted - thanks for accepting me into the group.  Have played 6-string acoustic for about 50 years and am finding that the 3-string experience has opened up a whole new world that's really fun.

Thanks Ted for the warm welcome.  I live in Palm Bay Fl. East central Fl.  I have been building CBG's and the like for about a year.  Great Hobby I just need to work on my playing.

I will be looking on this site for any Fl based CBG events that I may be able to attend.

Thanks again as I learn this site.

Thank you so much for the Birthday wishes Ted. Year after year, you never fail. I've had 72 of em now, and were it not for you, I would have missed celebrating this one. Your post today on Facebook, was a little troubling, especially if it involves a circle of friends you count on. Whatever it is, hope somebody steps up for you.

Thanks Ted, 67 aint too bad for not really trying hard.
