    If he could play the guitar like he plays the bandsaw, he'd be a star!

    Very Unique!

    Ha! I don't think I'd have the heart to cut up the donor guitar. Pretty clever how he made the trigger activate the vibrato tailpiece (the whammy bar), though.

    He did some things with the bandsaw that I wouldn't have done, but hey, they're his hands. There were also some shots of him using a plane by holding the plane stationary in one hand and moving the workpiece across the plane with the other. One slip and he's have taken a nice chunk out of this right hand.

    What I find odd is that he even didn't bother to remove the strings at the beginning.
    Best regards,

    He also didn't bother tuning them at the end, either. Something tells me he's not a guitar player.

    So it was built to order. Cool. I can see Wyclef trying to get that through TSA

    Cool, but not the first

    Also, one should always carry a sidearm as well
