Dismal Ax ’66 Georgia Road Dog


Road Dog
Love it or hate it, the internal combustion engine has earned a special place in the hallowed halls of Americana. The golden age of the automobile brought new freedom of movement, and left behind a massive carbon skidmark, along with a nearly endless trail of discarded license plates. The latter of these legacies, reworked into pickguards, become the main visual feature of the Road Dog guitars and basses. In addition to a splash of color, these plates can add a very literal sense of time and place, offering ample opportunity for personal customization.
