On page 7, we saw these beautiful, original, electric guitar masterpieces being made by Mr. R's students at F.K.Lane High School and the High School of Public Service at Wingate... here are some that are finished. Soon, we will be making amplifiers... a few students have already made headphone amps, and some are nearly done with full amps with speakers. The frets on these guitars are set to seven-tone equal temperament, a microtonal scale. Check out page 9 for videos and music.
