Abstract Mutilator Guitars



Stainless Steel Pickguard


LSR went on to build and design a number of original designs and a number of one of a kind familiar shapes. Some of these familiar shapes happened simply because a customer might request a "Custom guitar with a body loosely resembling a Rickenbacker or a "Custom headless guitar shaped like a Kramer.  LSR not being much more than a fairly large custom shop was able to get away with doing things that a larger company would have been sued for. 

After about 600 guitars were built several competing companies had their attorneys send cease & desist letters requesting that LSR no longer offer these certain offending models.  Leslie West, & Buck Dharma are two of the original LSR artists. Leslie even wanted to produce the guitars under his own name which only lasted a short time due to LSR's limitations to be able to mass produce. To this day all LSR Guitars are hand made and there are almost 70 different designs available as of 2010.
It is relatively common for a player of Leslie's status to use a small company to build their guitars and then go to a company with mass production capabilities to manufacture the corporate signature models.
