This "Sword" guitar is a slightly altered version of one I saw in a magazine some time ago.  This one I made from an 8' piece of white aspen.  Built from scratch, it has reverse strung tuners, and volume and tone controls not found on the original.  The neck comes to a point to simulate the tip of a sword.  It is airbrushed to complete the finish.  With an Ibanez bridge and a double humbucker pickup, this guitar is a fully functional instrument and a piece of art that plays and displays well.
