The Flying B
This blog post is the latest in a very occasional series on guitars shaped like letters of the alphabet. Obviously there's the Gibson Flying V and various other V-shaped guitars (including doublenecks that resemble a W), Explorer-style guitars that are quite Z-like in shape, Takamine's acoustic Flying A guitar, and even an S-shaped guitar.

And now there's this The Borealis guitar, apparently one of 100 made, commissioned by the Aurora String Corp. and shown at the 2012 NAMM show. The body design is based loosely around a letter B, which is reflected in the shaping of the headstock.

The seller's estimated value of this guitar is $2000-$5500, and the starting bid on the eBay auction for this particular example is £1,700.
