Here we have a "B" Wing Fighter guitar constructed from a model of the fighter spacecraft from Return of the Jedi, neck from a damaged Aria acoustic guitar, and Stratocaster electrics. It was created by Tom Bingham, who reinforced the "body" with plywood and filled it out to a solid bar by using Gorilla Glue. Tom tells me that he bought the "B" Wing Fighter model at a car boot sale for £8 and constructed the whole guitar in his bedsitter without the use of any electric tools and estimates that the build cost about £100.
He has previously made a Millenium Falcon Telecaster and other guitars such as a chessboard guitar, winebox guitar, cigarbox twin-neck, some of which we may look at in the future.
