The Splatocaster

“I’ve got a project for you that’s right up your alley.” That was what Uber Builder Scott Buehl was told when given a cartoon design done by Jimmy Stout and a little plastic envelope of colored juices. Scott reflects, “The aluminum body was actually the easy part for me; the fluid concoctions were the wrench in the gears…’Damn it Jim! I’m a doctor not a chemist!’” Scott reveals, “I thought about quitting my job several times …That was easily the most difficult guitar I’ve ever done.”
