GuitaR2-D2 - Sweet Ass Custom R2-D2 Guitar

GearR2-D2by Joey Paur

Here's something that's sure to put a smile on your face! As you can see, it's a custom made R2-D2 guitar built by a guy named Doug from Doug Draws Things who says,

Go ahead and call me vain, just as long as you call me brilliant in the same breath… and modest. 

The body is custom cut from 2 pieces of poplar. The neck was ordered from a custom place here in SF. Most of the guitar guts were from a used Ibanez I got off of Craigslist. The details of the guitar were hand painted with acrylic paint. The front and back are protected by clear acrylic sheet which I cut and beveled by hand using a Dremel (also found on Craigslist).
