The Orange Volta Air Guitar

The Orange Volta Air Guitar

Ok so its not a camera shaped rattle - but it is a new take on an old design for me.

The neck has machine sewn tucks to resemble frets and I've hand sewn strings (4 in total - I wasnt sure how many strings an air guitar needed ;) ...)

It's currently available in my shop.

I was so pleased with the way it turned out I joined a new flickr group - "Handmade guitars". I've added my photos....and now I'm waiting and hoping that people take me seriously and dont get pissed off that my handmade guitar isn't the playing kind.

Too cute! I've always wanted my own personal air guitar - forget the kids.
PS On your recommendation I have been to Queanbeyan op shopping. Thanks for the tip..and maybe I will see you tomorrow at the YMCA garage sale/
