acrylic-bodied "Roach-o-caster" electric guitar from RP Custom Guitars of Los Angeles say it all. We've looked at a number of see-thru acrylic-bodied guitars before, but the big difference with the Roach-o-caster is that it comes with its own entombed insect cast inside the acrylic body. I don't know about you, but I can't say that I'm too comfortable with the morality or ethics of putting dead bodies of living creatures into a musical instrument, even if it is something as frequently reviled as a cockroach (although I am told that they make very nice pets). The question is, was it already dead when it was put in? I certainly hope so.
Even then, there's something quite ghoulish about it.
This guitar, currently located in Berlin, is now listed on eBay.de with a But It Now price of €899.
