    This is certainly my most unusual build!

    Neckbolt Guitars body with resin encrusted bottle caps Fralin and Fender pick ups solder less harness by obsidian anodized hardware by Forney custom and of course the Alef Guitars aluminum neck. What you got I know there are some wired ones out there!

    ... as the Hunter S. Thompson says "when the going get's weird the weird turn pro,"

    I had a neck that I had replaced the trussrod on, a plywood Strat body, a couple of 60's Japanese pickups, a piezo and a small aluminum skillet.

    I give you Strat-O-Rez

    I love wacky guitars.

    Here's a build from 10 years ago.

    Here's a headless one I completed a few weeks ago.

    How did you make that aluminum neck? Very cool.

    I bought this guitar years ago from someone with the headstock broken off. My intention was to create a headless guitar. Mission accomplished. I had the neck-end piece special machined out of a solid piece of brass stock. The tuners are from a Hohner "The Sting." My only issue is the bridge saddles are lowered as far as they will go and the action is too high. This guitar would be good for slide or lap steel slide.

    Gas can travel guitar/amp setup. The little battery-powered amp on the chair in the first pic slides into a hinged compartment.

    It turned out great and it's very versatile. You can do some bass like chords on the lower strings, guitar chords on the higher and play Dulcimer style too. With distortion and a slide, it gets real tasty.:twisted:

    "Pigaphone" made from a GFS closeout travel guitar body and a early 70's Epiphone acoustic neck. Also features a GFS goldfoil and an Artec booster circuit.

    The slide makes me think microtonal frets would be insane! Really creative build all about the tone! What is the bridge?

    Well... Apart my little Radio-Tone amp, I have nothing really weird built to show... :oops:

    And again : the Radio-Tone is only somewhat weird because of its size for a standalone 2.5W RMS tube amp :

    That said, all the guitar project I see here can rather be qualified as "weird piece of art" :cool::cool::cool: !
