Offbeat: Guitar Maker

HOT SPRINGS, AR(KAIT)--Bert Clevenger loves to play an electric guitar, but loves to make them even more.

Clevenger started refurbishing guitars for friends and family nearly 25 years ago, but it was just about 2 1/2 years ago that he decided he could do the whole thing himself.  After plenty of experimentation and trial and error, Clevenger made his first guitar, laminated with photos of one of his favorite things...cigars.

Bert loves exotic woods and make his instruments out of African mahogony, sepaley, poplar, oak, and maple.  He has several styles and actually created the tools he uses to make them.
