You’re My Carbon Fibre Guitar Hero

Weighing in at 1.4kg, this acoustic guitar is not like other acoustic guitars – you could almost say it’s the Darth Vader of guitars. Evil to the core.

Creator Blackbird Guitars is asking $US1600 for it – quite a lot, yes, but they’ve done some tricky fiddling with the guitar’s shape, by extending the shoulder to the 10th fret to increase the volume, and treating the asymmetrical hole as an amplifier. Just don’t go playing the Imperial March on it. [Yahoo via Geekologie]
