    In the 1970's, he gained notoriety from the stringed instrument community with his first solid body electric violin, and continued experimenting with numerous variations on this design in order to create an aesthetically appealing electric violin that would allow him to move freely while playing.
    More Details Hide Details It has since evolved into the Viper, a fretted, six-stringed electric violin with a patented chest support system. Now dubbed, "the Les Paul of the Violin world," he owns, Wood Violins, the producer of five lines of custom-made electric violins and cellos. Judy Kang, violinist for Lady Gaga's The Monster Ball Tour, uses one of Wood’s Vipers.

While Wood works primarily with the stringed instrument portion of the band, his wife, Laura Kaye works with the choir and son, Elijah, the rhythm section, in order to invigorate interest for the school's entire music program within both the community and student body.
