You’ve probably seen your fair share of guitar shapes – the classics, the innovators, the downright weird. But hold on tight, because we’re about to take a wild detour into the land of the “uncut” guitar. Brace yourselves, folks, because it’s about to get square.

Enter Uri Tuchman, a YouTube sensation and a self-proclaimed master of unconventional craftsmanship. In a bold move that defies all norms, he decided to take part in the luthier Great Guitar Build-Off competition. And boy, it’s a sight that will make you question reality – a Les Paul guitar trapped within a square chunk of wood. It’s weirdly reminiscent of the Han Solo carbonite guitar, don’t you think ?

Now, you might be scratching your head and asking, “Why on earth would someone do that?” Well, my friends, that’s the enigma of artistic expression. Sometimes, you just have to throw all conventions out the window and embrace the sheer absurdity of it all. And let me tell you, Tuchman isn’t holding back. He’s diving headfirst into the pool of eccentricity.

But wait, there’s more! Oh yes, Tuchman takes it up another notch by presenting us with an “uncut” headstock that’s only partially separated from the master block. It’s like the guitar is screaming, “I’m still in progress! Give me some space to figure out my shape, will ya?”

And just when you think it can’t get any more bewildering, Tuchman unveils a meticulously crafted scratch plate. You see, his background as an engraver comes in handy, as he manages to delicately etch a design that adds a touch of elegance to this square masterpiece. It’s like a fancy lace doily slapped onto a rough, unfinished sculpture. The juxtaposition is nothing short of mind-boggling.

Now, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to dive headfirst into this world of unconventional guitar design, I recommend delving deeper into the details of the competition and witnessing Tuchman’s journey with this unorthodox build: The Art of Building a Rectangular Guitar. It’s a true testament to the unapologetic madness that thrives within the guitar community.
