Acrylic isn’t as noble as wood, but it offers something that few other materials can: Transparency. This guitar, made with cogwheels recovered from old clocks, has a Steampunk flavor and a romantic touch, as well. Bronze, steel, and toasted maple compose yet another instrument that was born as a prototype. Paradoxically, the guitars that don’t make it into Leo’s commercial production stay as unique pieces, becoming the most valuable of his production.
