Electric Masterpiece

Step back for a moment and admire the craftsmanship of the electric guitar sculptures from Carver Doug. After carving wood for over 40 years, sculptor and woodcarver Doug Rowell claims that he can carve anything, out of anything. He proves his point with an astounding collection of hand-carved guitars, some which he salvages from old broken-down axes no one thought would ever see the light of day again. Case in point, the hand-carved guitar above, which he calls "Golden Girl Telecaster," a 1973 Fender Telecaster that was left for dead after being run over by a car. Rowell carves guitars for the stars, and dozens of examples of his fine art are now serious collector's items. If you think about it, electric guitars are essentially made of wood, so carving them up in an eye-catching way is a natural. Amazing. Follow the link to Doug s product page for lots more examples.
