First, one of the most amazing all-metal (except the neck) guitars I’ve ever seen:
A firm called Archangels Guitars made this one:
A beautiful detail:
An interesting take on ‘artistically abstracted circuitry’
A nice take on the ‘almost normal on the outside but totally steam-driven on the inside’ meme
Blends in perfectly with the peeling paintwork of an old park bench, no?
There’s something uniquely recognisable about the strat which seems to offer endless scope for steampunk originality
You don’t even have to steampunk your entire guitar:
That rusted look says ‘steam did this’:
For those who want to add just a touch of steampunk cool to their regular strat: the pickguard:
That rare thing: a steampunk strat without the strat pickups:
The term ‘industrial might’ fits here:
Somebody is bound to say ‘steampunk? It’s art nouveau!’
When it comes to ‘cutaway’ steampunk takes it to a whole new level
That ‘grater effect’ surface: mind your fingertips?
He’s invented hundreds: yes, some of them are more than a bit guitar-like
