John F. Abate has been the sole owner of Marketforce, a provider of high-quality printed guides, since 1988. In addition, he has led operations at Wintrack and Success Publishers, LLC. An entrepreneur with diverse experience, John F. Abate also maintains US Letters Patent No. D750,700 for the black cross electric guitar body.

Since the introduction of the solid-body electric guitar by Les Paul in 1941, the instrument has become available in numerous models and specialty shapes. One such example is the Gibson Flying V, which takes the shape of its namesake letter. This guitar’s body has two angled points, in contrast to the single, rounded end associated with most guitars. Introduced in 1958, this “futuristic” body design, along with that of the Explorer and Moderne guitar models, was initially not a success. However, it later became popular among heavy metal bands.

The multi-neck guitar is another type of specialty guitar model. This model, which can also be purchased as an acoustic or bass guitar, provides players with a much fuller, more versatile sound. The double-neck guitar, which started being mass-manufactured in the same year as the flying V model, usually features both a six-string and twelve-string neck. This rich combination was displayed in Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.”

Additional notable electric guitar designs include the Gibson SG, Fender’s iconic stratocaster and telecaster models, and the Gibson Les Paul, arguably the standard for electric guitar design.
