Piotrowski one-piece solidbody electric 12-string for sale in Canada
Rich H brought this hand-made one-off Piotrowski one-piece solidbody electric 12-string to my attention. I don't know who Piotrowski is and whilst I don't particularly care for the exaggerated body horns, I have to admit it does look to be quite a neat piece of work, being carved out of a single piece of wood. Note how the neck smoothly transitions into the body without any heel. Conversely, check out the headstock: that's quite some volute up there! The guitar features two humbuckers with coil taps - probably a good idea seeing as the sound produced by humbuckers on a 12-string could be way over the top. Currently being offered for sale for $1,000 (Canadian, I assume).

  1. Did he carve his grandpa table or something like that to obtain such a big woodplate? (Just joking). It looks great and might sound great!but it might be a little "neck heavy"unless the upper horn is long enough to equilibrate,not counting the huge brass cover underneath that must weight a ton...

  2. I bet that bad boy sustains like crazy.

    1. Yeah, but that's probably not the effect you'd want from a 12-string.
