Apparently Lee Nunes was watching Buster Keaton’s ‘The General’ when he happened to notice a striking similarity between this train and the plans of a guitar by Ignacio Fleta. It’s pretty uncanny. Good eye, Lee!

What’s the difference between the Fleta and the locomotive train ?? A : The Fleta is more expensive.
The transverse bar is rather heavy me thinks ?
Lee Nunes has a brilliant imagination ,in actual fact the similarity is uncanny and remarkable.
Please get your facts right .It should be Ignacio Keaton and Buster Fleta e hijos.
iS THAT THE SOUND OF THE FLETA ? NO ,IT’S THE SOUND OF THE MAN WORKING ON THE TRAIN……HA HA HA .
Folks ,do not try this at home ,it could be dangerous ….AAH
Interesting; but how did Fleta get that big piece of wood inside such a small guitar?
Oh, one more thing: that fan design of the “cow-”catcher” in the design. It makes sense on the locomotive, but on a guitar; now, really, when was the last time you saw a cow in a concert hall?
