Bardsong (Shawn & Jenny Spencer)
The Spencers made some wild-looking mandolin-family instruments out of recycled and exotic woods. Their output was mostly acoustic instruments with optional onboard pickups, like the bouzouki pictured at right. But on the left is a Bardsong solidbody electric "zouk"—converted by Shawn from an old Gibson SG. And below is an electric mandocello that Shawn built and sold to none other than Bo Diddley.
