                        Jynx Electric Guitar by Tony Cochran
This electric guitar is twice jinxed. Andrew “Fish” Cook bought a charred guitar body from a street vendor in Arkesden, Essex in 1994. The seller claimed it had been salvaged from a 1991 house fire where a famous Rock musician perished. The entire right side had been burnt to a crisp, so Andrew fashioned a prosthetic control area using a 1949 Sunbeam hedge trimmer his uncle had given to him in a box of junk. Sometime in 2001, the police came looking for the box because his now deceased uncle had been implicated in a murder cover-up. According to the detective, the unearthed body looked like “it had been hacked up with a weedwacker”. Andrew told him there was nothing in the box that would be helpful, so they left. He thought about the crusty dark bits he had chipped off the trimmer, sold the guitar, and bought a drum set.

Vilma Electric Guitar
by Tony Cochran Guitars
An unlikely event, this electric guitar was found in a chained metal locker. It was beneath the foundation of a K-Mart being torn down on Bethel Rd. in Columbus, Ohio. Even more unlikely, it had been fitted with the only known Vilma tone plate ever seen outside of photographs. Fitted snuggly between the neck and bridge pickups, a Vilma tone plate is rumored to Deandrisize all fractile sounds an infinite number of times. This results in a kind of “sonic resting” or, in other words, the mellowing of supposedly silent spaces between sound waves. I didn’t believe it either, but it sure sounds like it works to me. Does anyone know if that’s a dragon or a sea serpent around the tone controls? It would really help me to date it. - See more at: http://www.tonycochranguitars.com/vilma-electric-guitar.html

                                      Inhibitor Electric Guitar
                                     by Tony Cochran Guitars
The Inhibitor electric guitar is the ultimate example of a truly crazy man’s musical instrument. Crazy is such a politically incorrect term these days, as is nuts, bonkers, looney, and a brick shy of a full load of normal. All could apply to Junior Hoskins, of West Haywood, TN. Junior was arguably the most gifted guitar player that ever lived and if he could have successfully shut off the sounds in his head, that he claimed clamored continuously, he may still be remembered with today’s greatest guitar virtuosos. Instead he rapidly chased sanity down a worm hole of no return. Every week he would add “brain fixers” to his well worn axe in an attempt to quiet what he described as “How mice would sing with no heads.” What? Early attempts, remaining on the guitar, include the Wirl-A-Way with clear Reverse chamber, a number 22-6N7G Bell Toner with Vend light, an Electra 21.83MEG that’s externally wired, and a bridge magazine that is registering “Empty” right now. The Inhibitor was installed in late summer 1971. He had mixed results, but did manage to write one more cool song which turned out to be “Out of Limits” played backwards. A good woman, and even better meds, eventually solved a lot of his problems, but they also made him abandon guitar for leather tooling. He was lousy at leather tooling. - See more at: www.facebook.com/TonyCochranGuitars

                  Betty Electric Guitar by Tony Cochran Guitars
This electric guitar was named after the owner’s beloved Mother, Betty Severton, a piano teacher in Lima, Ohio. She taught lessons in her 3rd floor walk-up on an old Baldwin Acrosonic spinet piano. When she finally got evicted in 1965, for nonpayment of rent, she hired 3 high school boys to help her move it. They decided to lower it out the window with an old rope and 2 leather belts. Betty, directing from below, was flattened when 1 of the belts slipped and sent 300 pounds of unfettered spinet onto her head. Emotionally as crushed as his Mother was physically, Kyle Severton made most of this guitar out of the bits and pieces of piano he recovered as well as his Mother’s good silver pie server. He wanted her symbolically with him and she loved pie. He went on to play in several now defunct bands trying to fuse Surf Rock with Gospel. He eventually quit to lay brick. - See more:

LightHouse  guitar
by Tony Cochran Guitars



Detail pics at: http://www.tonycochranguitars.com/lighthouse-guitar.html 

This electric guitar was found in the crawl space of a long defunct bordello in New Orleans that carried the same name. It is so flashy it could be mistaken for a 15th century religious artifact. Rumor is it belonged to Geoff Diedraugh, a purveyor of the “Creole Crush”, a wicked version of the blues. The “Creole Crush” was outlawed for “all public performance or as payment in kind”. No one knows what that means, but that’s how it’s still worded in municipal code. Geoff was a scofflaw who played it anyway and his rendition of “Sadie’s Gotta Hammer” got him arrested. He died in prison before he ever got a chance to retrieve the LightHouse guitar for an encore. You should see the weird photo that was in the case with it. Goes with the guitar if you want to see it.

 Steinlite guitar 
by Tony Cochran Guitars 

                                                                             The Steinlite electric guitar was found in a safe excavated from beneath the foundation of The Radio Building at 823 Kansas Ave. in Atchison, Kansas. It is rumored that Fred Stein, the genius who invented plug-in radio, was hiding it from the prying eyes of Gibson Guitar who wanted to sue him. In many ways similar to Gibson’s Les Paul model, the Steinlite differed with a bolt on neck, louvered sonic channels and also incorporated parts from his famous Grain Moisture Detector. When questioned about why an electric guitar would need moisture detecting abilities, Fred said, slyly, “You have to know when the woman you’re playing to wants you to put down the damn guitar and take care of business.” Fred was quite the kidder. It’s never been apart. I preferred to leave its rusty, crusty, industrial look undisturbed, along with any secrets its guts may spill. I can’t make anything light up on it, but then I don’t play that well.

IonoGlobe electric guitar by Tony Cochran Guitars

 

The most unique feature of this electric guitar is the fully wired metal ball right by the neck. Farber Endison played this guitar in the late 50’s for a band called The Bubble Tops. Their specialty was car oriented Rock-a-billy music before anyone wanted to hear it. When Farber’s Uncle, Gropper T. Endison, was on safari in what is now known as Namibia, he had nearly been hit by a baseball size metal ball that fell from he sky. (This stuff still happens there. Google it.) He gave it to Farber claiming he could no longer bear the noises it made in his head. Farber’s brother, Clayton, a hypothetical electrical genius, wired it to the guitar and told Farber that it would enhance the almost inaudible, and probably imagined, sounds emanating from the orb. It was probably not true. What we do know is that soon after, Farber grew out his hair, quit wearing shoes, and would only play the guitar in a cave found in the mountains behind his parents’ house. He was found dead in 1965, deep in the cave with the guitar in his lap. There was a partially eaten sandwich and the diagram for five never before heard chords. To this day Clayton will not release them to the public.

OSScaster Electric Guitar by Tony Cochran Guitars
This is the only electric guitar in existence where both an OSS device and a Tone Baker have been electronically mated successfully. Buckle up, guitarionados, this instrument is a rough old relic but its story is almost unbelievable. Osso Bucca was an immigrant who came to America in the ’60s after being fired by Galanti Guitar in Italy. He brought his knowledge of “radio gain” (that’s how it translates to English) with him to Wyoming. There he met up with Tex Gilders who had been fired by Fender for working on a device of his own, called a “Baker”. It’s not real clear what either of these devices is supposed to do singularly but, supposedly, they do it way better in tandem. The only quote from Gilder and Bucca was a note that said, “It does for tone what an oven does for biscuits”. I agree.

Strobotac Electric Guitar - by Tony Cochran GuitarsThis electric guitar was the result of sound experiments performed by Clavin P. Bogold in 1961. Unlike conventional guitar music, where notes are echoed in reverb, he attempted to make a device that preverbed or, in other words, reversed reverb. Everything was so analog and noisy back then. He recorded some surfer tunes with the guitar, but they just came out sad and oddly satanic. Now the motor knob is stuck and the elevation button and comfort control switch are not hooked up. It doesn’t preverb. It doesn’t reverb. It just verbs. Sounds amazing anyway. It might be the one-of-a-kind Strobolux Pacemaker Line bridge.- See more at: http://www.tonycochranguitars.com/strobotac.html

Sandpiper Electric Guitar -  by Tony Cochran Guitars
Monaco “Stallion” Ceriani worked his magic with this electric guitar at the now shuttered Sandpiper Motel and Lounge in Bolivia, NC. His music was a peculiar mix of P-Funk and Psychedelic Jazz with a weird Reggae flavor that left everyone confused about how to dance to it. It is rumored he built the guitar from the broken shell of a 1965 Firebird, an old Epiphone, and his dead Mom’s jewelry box. The Lounge was closed in 1975 when US 17 caused a decline in attendance. The Stallion decided to sell the guitar and switch to screenwriting. He was contributor to many Different Strokes episodes, as well as being a musical consultant to The Partridge Family. - See more at: http://www.tonycochranguitars.com/sandpiper.html

Arkanacaster Guitar 
by Tony Cochran Guitars


This electric guitar was the property of Country Western star Diamond Ted Raymond of Deadtree, Arkansas. He fitted it with what he called “a harmonic deceptor”, a crude, but effective planking system that humanized bent notes. Diamond Ted specialized in a particularly nasty breed of Honky Tonk called Flinch Wailing. After it was outlawed by the state and condemned in the Catholic Telegraph, Diamond Ted went underground with his performances until his death in 1961. He passed out drunk while eating peanut butter with his hands, and squirrels ate his fingers off. He bled to death. Rumor has it … he wanted his guitar buried with him, but his lousy brother stole it from the funeral home. The deceptor doesn’t seem to work anymore, but it’s still a handsome piece.

This bass guitar was found in the wreckage of a Greyhound bus that ran off the road in 1951. There were only 6 people on the bus … the driver, 2 very deaf women from Huntsville, Alabama, a senator from Maine with his mistress, and a 12 year old off to visit his Grandmother in Tulsa. None checked in a guitar as luggage. There was a hand written note inside the case, on a thin sheet of rice paper. It said, “IT’S NOT MINE”… . Weird.

New Alumicaster guitar completed! 
Like at www.facebook.com/TonyCochranGuitars for detail photos and first notice of new work. This is one of my favorite guitars I created on my work bench a little while ago. It needed a new volume pot. Rumor Has It …  It’s a Strat look alike clad with aluminum from the Porsche James Dean died in. The guy I bought it from said a friend of a friend swiped a door from the car. (The car has never been accounted for, by the way.) He deskinned the door and used the sheet aluminum to shore up some bad cracks in the body of his guitar. He had documents. I believed him. Enough said.
