Standard Models & Custom Orders
The guitars in this gallery are sold, but will give you an idea of what can be done. Occasionally in-stock guitars for sale will be featured and noted as available.
THE BLUECASTER. Distressed-looking ash with dominant blue cast. Weathered steel pickguard and aged hardware complete the look.
ES-137 MAD MAX. My first semi-hollowbody, this Gibson ES-137P was transformed into a post-apocalyptic beauty that plays amazingly well and sounds absolutely glorious.
THE PATINACASTER. My first f-hole Telecaster. This is different from my usual copper finish in that it has a good deal of blue "patina" worked throughout for a very convincing look of real metal in a guitar that's all wood.
THE STEELCASTER II. Made to look like distressed pieces of sheet metal steel, this Tele body is all wood. The lip around the perimeter of the guitar adds a subtle carved top effect.
THE GOOSEACASTER. Built as a fundraising piece in the memory of friend Jeff "Goose" Elrod.
THE CHARCASTER. This deep and dimensional carve looks like intertwining charcoal sinews. I guess.
THE METALCASTER. Has the illusion of sheet metal overlapping perforated steel.
THE CURVECASTER. Faux-metal bronze finish on organically curved "sheets" of metal.
THE LIGHTCASTER. Faux sheet metal design with 39 LED lights. On/off switch hidden on the back. Bring your own light show!
THE RIPPLECASTER. Inspired by a piece of rusted corrugated steel. Looks amazing under lights, as the valleys create shadows that move with the guitar. All wood (alder).
THE 51CASTER. In honor of the birth year of the Telecaster, this all-wood body has the appearance of distressed, riveted metal.
THE HYDRANTCASTER. Inspired by a worn fire hydrant that's seen better days.
THE CEMENTACASTER. Made to look like a slab of cracking cement, it's 100% wood.
THE METAL PAUL. An entire Gibson Les Paul, looking somewhat classy in shiny black "sheet metal."
THE METAL PAUL II. A more distressed take on the metal LP.
THE BATTLECASTER. A gunmetal grey faux-metal Tele inspired by a battleship. Like all Seta designs, this alder guitar is all wood except for the aluminum rivets.
THE FINCASTER. Inspired by the fins of a great white...beautiful and elegant, yet showing signs of wear.
THE TATTOCASTER. Inspired by a customer's tattoo, this intricately carved ash body was custom-stained to match the color and grain markings of the canary neck. While it looks as though the guitar has a pickguard, it's only an illusion carved into the design.
THE BADASSACASTER. This tough-looking Tele looks like it's been through a war or two.
THE STONECASTER. A faux herringbone stone pattern carved directly into this mahogany Telecaster. It's an all-wood guitar that looks like stone, for those who want to rock.
THE INCACASTER. A subtle yet captivating full-body design reminiscent of Aztec design. One of my signature patterns.
THE MDA-CASTER. Built as a guitar to be auctioned to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Look closely and you can see the letters M-D-A in the design.
THE PERFOCASTER. The look of perforated steel mesh, with my signature rivets on the binding.
THE PERFOCASTER II. Perfocaster's cousin!
THE XCASTER. Not really sure what to say about this one...
THE SHARKASTER. This beautiful alder Warmoth body borrows lines from the fins and tail of the tiger shark. The "pick guard"; is actually carved into the design of the one-piece body.
THE SETACASTER. The Strat that started it all for me. Yes, the cuts go all the way through the guitar, and it sounds as good as any other guitar I have...and I have a lot.
THE TUXCASTER. One in my faux-metal series, this one is a relatively formal-looking black with silver.
THE SETACASTER II. This came from my desire to have a maple-neck guitar, and shamelessly plug the company when I play out.
THE COPPERTOP. A rare foray into Gibsonland. This LPJ was transformed from a worn cherry finish into what looks like weathered pieces of copper riveted together—but it's all wood. Looks incredible under stage lights.
THE STRESSACASTER. Another take on the distressed guitar look, with finish only (no carving).
THE FUZZROCKER. Built for a corporate client whose name and logo are similar to the carve, which closely follows the classic Strat shape.
THE CURLYCASTER. Simple, elegant lines. High-contrast carve yet still subtle.
THE TATTOCASTER II. Inspired by the original Tattocaster, this one uses a real pickguard and top-mounted electronics.
THE SHELLACASTER. Inspired by a seashell, this once normal Fender body was transformed into a one-of-a-kind instrument. A custom metallic finish adds the illusion of even more depth to the carving.
THE COPPERCASTER. This Tele was carved to give the appearance of old sheet metal. There is no metal in this body — even the rivets are carved from wood.
THE NECROCASTER. Made to look like charred, carbonized, twisted wood.
THE ORANGECASTER. Another faux sheet metal guitar, with the wood painted to look like sheet metal. This is a Squire Bullet, and I incorporated the original orange metallic finish on the back and sides.
THE DRIFTCASTER. Inspired by a piece of driftwood. Very layered and organic.
THE DISASTERCASTER. This chambered mahogany body couldn't be carved, but that didn't mean we couldn't have fun with it. The distressed finish is unlike any "relic" guitars out there, and the plastic pickguard was hand-painted to look like metal that's had a rough life.
THE BARNCASTER XXX Hints of yellow and red make this one pop.
THE ALIENCASTER. Inspired by the movie Alien, this Tele is admittedly quite bizarre. Carved from a single slab of wood, the deep cuts expose the "inner workings" of this otherworldly axe. Pickguard was distressed to match.
THE COPPPERCASTER II. Another in my "sheet metal" series. This Tele looks as though it's made of copper sheets bound with a band of steel, but it's all wood, except for the real aluminum rivets.
THE COPPERCASTER III. This one has the sheet metal effect going right to the edge of the guitar.
THE RUSTCASTER. A different twist on the faux-metal (but all-wood) finish, incorporating the natural wood and real rust in the paint.
THE COPPERCASTER IV. What can I say? It's a popular design. This one has the natural wood sides and back.
THE GOLDCASTER. Looks like sheets of tarnished gold riveted together. (Gold doesn't really tarnish, but that's our little secret.)
THE BARNCASTER. Made to look like century-old barn siding, with matching aged pickguard.
THE METALCASTER II. This all-wood Strat looks like pieces of sheet metal and expanded steel riveted together.
THE RUSTCASTER II. Real rust with some of the "original" finish still showing.
THE BRONZECASTER. A more subdued faux-metal Tele with real bronze paint aged to a subtle patina.
THE COPPERCASTER V. A classic!
THE COPPERCASTER VII. Another copper finish, but this one is a bit different: two humbuckers and no pickguard.
THE ROOTSCASTER. Inspired by the roots of a tree growing on the bank of a creek. It's roughly-hewn for a very organic look.
THE RELICASTER. Made to look like old whitewashed barn wood.
THE BADASSACASTER II. Little brother to the Badassacaster, but just as tough.
THE NOIRCASTER. Black and sophisticated (at least relatively speaking!).
THE BARNCASTER III. My "barn wood" finish with rear-mounted pickups and an f-hole.
THE ATOMICASTER. Bold lettering follows the curve of the body, and is accented by the silver flake paint creating a stunning contrast.
THE SLATOCASTER. Overlapping slats of "sheet metal" carved completely from a single piece of wood.
THE CURVECASTER II. This time with my classic copper finish and a few more "chunks" than the original Curvecaster.
THE TIGERCASTER. This rich and bold design was inspired by the stripes and curves of its jungle cat namesake. Very earthy and alive.
THE NAUTICASTER. Inspired by the Nautilus submarine from the movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, this all-wood body has the illusion of metal panels held together with rivets (these are actually aluminum, hand painted to look weathered).
THE COPPERCASTER VI. Dangerously close to the Coppercaster V, but with subtle hints of blue patina.
THE RED BARNCASTER. Beautiful ash grain peeking through what looks like decades of old paint and weathering.
THE CURVECASTER III. Bold and organic curves, with the look of thick sheets of metal in an all-wood guitar.
THE METALCASTER 3. Dirty and raw, accented with a maple neck.
THE COPPERCASTER VIII. Why should Telecasters have all the fun? This faux-copper Strat is all wood.
THE BARNCASTER IV. Tastefully distressed to look a century old.
THE BLUECASTER II. Another barn wood-look Tele in shades of blue.
THE RED BARNCASTER IV
THE COPPERTOP II. Simplified controls for a purer tone.
THE TATTERCASTER. My take on the "relic" look. Instead of imitating a worn classic finish, this body looks like an old piece of barn siding made into a guitar and played hard for years.
THE COPPERCASTER VIII. Here we go again!
THE COPPERCASTER IX. This one is ash and some of the grain is allowed to come through. With matching pickguard.
THE RUSTYCASTER. Subtle and gorgeous. Looks like it's made of a solid chunk of weathered steel.
THE BLACK BARNCASTER. Subtle aging makes it look like this Tele is a century old.
THE RED BARNCASTER II. Made to looks as it was crafted from weather planks from a rustic barn.
THE BARNCASTER V. Lots of colors, yet subtle and understated.
THE BADASSICASTER III. Down and dirty, like a WWII Sherman tank.
THE RUBYCASTER. This single-pickup Strat is bejeweled with hundreds of acrylic red gems. A bit over-the-top, it's absolutely insane under stage lights.
