The Romero

The Romero was probably some of the most fun we’ve had with a custom commission. The brief was a guitarlele using our resin/burl hybrid build method. The plan evolved over a few weeks but it progressively got more and more interesting. The end result was a Batman themed build using Lego® figurines and marbles, that the customer had owned since he was a child.

The scale length we settled in was 19″ and it’s an absolute blast to play! A perfect build to have by the sofa for when you feel like having a casual noodle. This is a great example of the beauty of a custom commission, you really get to call the shots and it’s great fun to bring the whole thing to life!
