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! New to CBGs and really excited about my first build! Bought an inexpensive fret less but working on one with frets. In your opinions, which is better, neck through or metal tail? Thanks, and I look forward to comments!!!
At 10:35am on December 31, 2020, Christopher Ivey said…

Thanks for the welcome Ted. I have just bought my first CBG and thought it best to learn to play it first and familiarise myself with it before I attempt to build one myself.
