Ceramic-bodied acoustic guitar

guitarz.blogspot.com:
From the listing on eBay:

"This ceramic guitar was built by Gabe Turow, of www.StoneInstruments.com. Over the course of two months the ceramic guitar was born: with the sound of a steel guitar mixed with the plunkiness of a banjo, this guitar is a total trip. The body is ceramic and the neck is oak. The body was constructed by throwing two bowls on the wheel, joining them, and then securing the neck onto the resonator with construction-grade adhesive. The headstock was hand-carved. The guitar comes with an audiophile-quality piezo-electric 1/2"X2" tape microphone and 1/4" input jack for amplification."

An intersting concept. Here's a YouTube video to explain the construction process:
