These guitars were build by Wayne Charvel and Eric Galletta in the early '90.
Those guitar have to be seen to be appreciated. The good news is that they are still available. Eric Galletta, who did the original design for the Ritz and WRC guitars, still produces these beauties under the brand name Galletta Guitars. Check him out: http://www.gallettaguitars.com/
These are a bunch of WRC Neptune Standard guitars. One of them number 26 was purchased by Lightning Joe's Guitar Heaven in California. Joe with this guitar in front of his shop is photographed in the book: The Custom Guitar Shop and Wayne Richard Charvel by Frank W/m Green. All are unique pieces as you cannot have identical shells to build the guitars. Number 26 are Tiger Cowrie & Violet Oyster shells meticulously hand-inlaid on the body and give to this guitar a very special coloration.
