Get your kicks ... with the Route 66 guitar
An eBay seller (curiously, in the UK) has put this self-built Route 66 guitar up for grabs. The body is of sapele laminates, and has a Fender-style neck bolted on. Pickups are single coil-sized humbuckers, "Iron Gear Jailhouse Rails" by Axetec.

Yes, and I imagine you could play that song on it too!
