Marie Osmond Actually
Designed This Guitar.
She Is Incredibly Artistic, She Involved Herself
Fully In The Project From Beginning To End !!!
Mike Risinger Did All The Body Carving & Re-Carving &
Marilyn Simms (Left) Did All The Jewelling.
I Met With Marie Myself 7 or 8 Times During The Design
& Prototype Phases.
This Guitar Holds The Record
For Design Changes !!!!
Under The 3000 Swarovski Crystals The Body Has
Sawblade Battlescars & Many Spliced On Pieces
The Signature Marie "M Logo" Is Raised 1/4" And Is Covered
With Hematite Crystals
We Drove The Guys In The Shop Crazy But We Had A Lot Of Fun
During The Designing Process I Got To Know Marie Quite Well.
She Is A Wonderful & Caring Person, I Hope To Work With Her
Again On Her Next Guitar Project.
It Was A Real Privilege To Get To Know Donny & Marie I Can

This Original Pre Gibson Steinberger Guitar was Leslie's Main Axe for more than 12 years.
Upon receiving his first LSR In 1998 Leslie demoted this to 2nd guitar.
He completely retired it in 1998 in favor of the EB-1 like
The Leslie West Rocket Model (above) was still on the Horizon
at that time.
This is the
Original Leslie West LSR Model. Many of them had "Leslie
West" inlaid in the wood just below the pickups.
This was patterned off the old
Steinberger that he used for 12 years.
When Leslie first got this guitar
he gave one of his old Steinbergers to Eddie Van Halen.
Incidentally Leslie was one of
Eddie's early influences.
