The concept of a guitar made from a turtle shell has been a concept firmly fixed in my mind since I saw Kirk Douglas playing one in the movie "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" as a small child. Other than the instrument used in that film (a prop, no doubt) the guitar pictured here - currently being offered for sale on eBay - is the first time I've actually seen this idea executed.
However, I hope the poor turtle wasn't executed for its shell.
