Hollis Fenn playing his Single Cut Hollow body

After bulding the license plate guitar shown above and posting photos on social media I've had a bunch of people message me and say something like "hey I've got some old license plates laying around can I send them to you."  Of course I said yes and that got me to thinking about how cool it would be to build license plate guitars using a license plate from all 50 states.   I already had a few different states like Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, and of course, Georgia in my collection so I decided to challenge myself and set a personal goal to build a license plate guitar with a plate from each state.   In the recent weeks I've had a lot of people send me license plates and I want to thank each and every one of them.    Below is a list of everyone that has sent me license plates and photos of some of the plates.   I will continue to update that list as I get more plates.   If you see a plate below or have a plate that you would like to have built into a license plate guitar please email me and let me know.  Also, if you see any guitar that I post photos of here that you would like to purchase or maybe have one custom built for you please let me know.  I will be posting guitars here that I am selling as I'm quickly learning that I can't keep them all.
