Custom Guitars Made to Match Classic Cars

Classic cars come from an age where cars were a thing of beauty. Designers focused on aesthetics to churn out cars each of which could be a piece of art. That age has gone, and while several of those classic cars may no longer be practical for the road, but their aesthetics still stand. Dave Gartland of Ali Kat is harnessing the beauty of classics from the ‘50s to make gorgeous, one of a kind custom guitars.


3D Printed Guitars

Electric guitars get a taste of 3D printing with ODD Guitars by Olaf Diegel. The guitar bodies are made out of nylon and they dyed through a two step process for the finished look. As they mention, in terms of construction this is much like any other electric guitar.

Decommissioned AK-47 converted into a guitar

Colombian sculptor César López creates some of the most badass looking guitars that presumably make other guitars look woefully inadequate with their war stories. The sculptor noticed many armed guards carried their guns like they would a guitar, leading Lopez towards the idea of fashioning guitars from the scary AK-47s. Lopez does not sell his creations, but hopes that “in the end the gun dies and the guitar is born.”

When guitars are weapons

Playing guitars shaped like weapons, you’d be something like… I don’t know a superhero or super-villain who attacks with music and does the finishing move with his guitar weapon. Actually, forget that part, you’d just be some guy with a weird-shaped guitar.
