Take a look at the model


The original Schylgercaster was a theme guitar for ‘De Mannen van Hee’. A music group playing on the island of Terschelling. During my vacation on the island I went looking for wood with the local carpenter. I then found elm wood there. Through the local diving club, I received a piece of copper skin cladding from a sunken wooden ship to use for the pickguard. This copper plate has been patinated by the sea for years and has been given these shades of colour. I also made this model in a more accessible version with an alder body and a more conventional headstock
