The making of an incredible guitar commissioned by musician Wyclef Jean:
The guitar was made by a guy named Jimmy DiResta, you can check out his other incredible work over at his DiResta website. How he managed to not chop a finger or two off on that band saw is also incredible; I love how he uses it to sculpt the wood.
2:48 – High capacity 6 string assault magazine! That Wyclef… always pushing the limits.
6:00 – Trigger controlled whammy. INTERNETS = WON.
Wyclef brandishing that badboy on the mean streets of NYC for TMZ:
Seeing how political Wyclef’s music is, knew there was going to be something anti-gun and deep behind this little project. Wait for it…… “we convert weapons into music” and then something about saving kids from gun culture all over the world.
There’s one other AK-47 Guitar I blogged about a while back which you can also check out. It’s more authentic looking, not like something a flamboyant African warlord would have commissioned Elton John to design.
Thoughts? When is the Deagle Brand Deagle guitar coming… maybe I’ll commission one just to troll.
