A NEW CUTAWAY CONCEPT CONCEPT FOR AN ELECTRIC SEMI-HOLLOW GUITAR

=======================================================================================

A NEW CUTAWAY-VARIATION FOR AN ES335-TYPE SEMI-HOLLOW ELECTRIC GUITAR.

This cutaway variation simply combines the "Mickey Mouse-ear" shape in the upper cutaway, with the more pointed/sharp es175-type bottom cutaway.

I have never seen this variation ever before in any guitar.

I used my built-in Microsoft "paint" program to edit-together the 2 cutaways, in various colors, so they could be combined in a visual image that would give an impression of the look.

Please ignore the details that don't line up properly, such as pickups, bridge, pick-guard, etc.

The images are just intended to portray the overall appearance of the body-shape & cutaway. 

Also keep in mind that the es335 is usually 1.75" or 2" thick at the edge, while the es175 is much thicker, at 3.5". 

I imagine this guitar to be the thinner, 
es335-type body thickness.

If you have an opinion about this shape, please leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Like Fascism, ANTI-FASCISM Also Has a History


In a very real sense, Hemingway was an Original "ANTIFA" member


     Hemingway reported-on and assisted the anti-fascists of Spain 
                               in the 1930s)





                               
                               The Famous Motto on Woodie's Guitar


"The biggest threat to America today 
is not communism. It's moving America 
toward a fascist theocracy"

                              Chomsky on fascism




“A fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends.” 
  ―Henry A. Wallace


“If a nation is leaving democracy and choosing fascism, it means that it is taking itself from a peaceful garden to a bloody slaughter house!” 
  ―Mehmet Murat ildan



“When Fascism came into power, most people were unprepared, both theoretically and practically. They were unable to believe that man could exhibit such propensities for evil, such lust for power, such disregard for the rights of the weak, or such yearning for submission. Only a few had been aware of the rumbling of the volcano preceding the outbreak.” 
  ―Erich FrommEscape from Freedom


“How anyone can vote to support any form of fascism, knowing history, is beyond me - which leads me to draw the conclusion that either the people who voted to support it don't know what they are doing - or that they know exactly what they are doing.”
   ―Christina EngelaAll That Remains



“The worst illiterate is the political illiterate, he doesn’t hear, 
doesn’t speak, nor participates in the political events. He doesn’t 
know the cost of life, the price of the bean, of the fish, 
of the flour, of the rent, of the shoes and of the medicine, 
all depends on political decisions. The political illiterate 
is so stupid that he is proud and swells his chest saying 
that he hates politics. The imbecile doesn’t know that, 
from his political ignorance is born the prostitute, the 
abandoned child, and the worst thieves of all, the bad politician, 
corrupted and flunky of the national and multinational companies.” 
Bertolt Brecht

Opinion of this blogger:

While not everyone who claims to be anti-fascist may be sincere or honorable (and they may be judged on their tactics), 
those who insist on a false equivalency between Fascism and Anti-Fascism are either uninformed, or fascistic themselves.






In America today, there are many 
non-violent ways to accomplish this:
