80s Elektro Heavy Metal Balalaika (allegedly)
Well, here's something a little bit ... different. The Russian traditional 3-string folk instrument gets a heavy metal makeover. Although in the demo video (below), it's playing 1980s electro-pop. I think for a metal sound it'd need a meatier pickup than a Tele neck-position unit.

Available from Folk Friends (in Germany) priced at €359,00 (approx US $478,67).

  1. Funny how it looks like a big bass instrument in the photo, but in performance it's more like a mandolin.

  2. A very British guitar actually on called "Musicvox Space Ranger Austin Powers Goldmenber guitar"

    Enjoy it !
