    Made with 1200 colored pencils. The only question is how much it weighs.

    I've seen turners do this for vases and bowls but this is the first guitar I've seen.

    Very cool outcome, and even more cool that he used some ordinary tools in a creative way to get what he needed.

    I'd be worried that it would colour the sound.

    I want the same ! In LH, of course... :D

    A strat is a so "ordinary" guitar : it's the occasion to build something original, unseen and colorful !

    A+!

    Thanks, never seen it before. Guy has some pretty fine skills all the way around (and patience cutting pencils).

    That's definitely one of a kind. The resin holding it all together has to weigh a bit. There's a guy that does turnings of all sorts of materials using resin on YouTube. This reminds me of Skunk Baxter's plexi Strat.
