Here's a one-off guitar originally built for Jeff Beck in 1992 by UK luthier Steve Acworth. Jeff Beck famously has a passion for hot rod cars, so it should come as no surprise that the guitar reflects this in its design. You can find more information on Steve's website, and also info on his other guitar builds, many of which are quite intriguing (e.g. Formica-topped acoustic guitars which apparently don't like having a bridge glued on for long, sitar guitars, and an amazing looking instrument called The Multiharp).
Quite why Jeff Beck doesn't still own the Ford '34 Coupé guitar is not explained, but the man himself has signed the guitar, and it is currently being offered for sale on eBay with a whopping Buy It Now price of £21,500.
Thanks to Ken for bringing this guitar listing on eBay to my attention.
