Heart-shaped guitar

Here's a one-off handmade heart-shaped guitar from a former student of instrument fabrication at Ontario College of Art and Design.

I'm reminded of the heart-shaped 12-string guitar built by John Birch in the 1970s for Rob Davies of glam-rock band Mud. That one, whilst having a smaller body, was also pierced by an arrow serving as the neck.

Anyway, I'm sure this particular guitar was a labour of love for its maker and have no wish to belittle the craftsmanship involved, but I can't help thinking that the Buy It Now price of $5,250 on eBay is slightly optimistic.
