"The Bum" - a rather cheeky electric guitar from UK luthier Pete Back

guitarz.blogspot.com:
Do you really need me to say anything about the guitar pictured here? It's currently being offered for sale on eBay with a starting price of £599 - which is pretty decent for a quality luthier-built one-off guitar. As the seller suggests, it would suit a glam or Spinal Tap-type band (yeah yeah, we know "Big Bottom" ought to be played on a bass).

Check here for more of Pete Back's guitars.

  2. These guitars which try to emulate the female form which is no doubt close to a guitar shape always remind me of the guitars the band in Dusk till Dawn when the vampire shit kicks off and all of a sudden the guitars are made from body parts. This one at least looks to be very high quality and does have a sense of humour about it. Unlike this:http://www.etsy.com/listing/72957355/female-form-6-string-acoustic-guitar?ref=cat3_gallery_2

  3. Yeah, but it's kinda creepy that there is a foot where, logically, the head would be situated on a human...

  4. Um... why is the headstock a foot?

  5. This was sold at an auction on March 16th this year, where it achieved a hammer price of £420 plus 18% buyer's premium, a total of £495 - so the seller's not making very much on a guitar he's barely owned for a month.

  6. That's not a headstock - it's a footstock. Or possibly a headsock...
