LaGrangeRustic Perfection in an Electric Guitar
La Grange: French for ‘The Barn’
Crafted from an antique pine barn board.
LaGrange’s body has revitalized a 200-year-old barn floorboard, recovered from a southern Ontario teardown. The remnant of a square-cut nail adorns the back.
The wood of this electric guitar is light and stiff, with a responsiveness reminiscent of an acoustic guitar. The wood was well-dried and the pine resins apparently crystalized when it was shaped. The neck, pickguard, and hardware have been aged in appearance to compliment the body.
LaGrange in the early stages of forming the body. Streaks of cyanoacrylate glue are visible where the wood was stabilized.
