Steampunk SP-1/Deluxe

The SP-1 (below) was the first Steampunk guitar I created. The idea behind it was to look like a Victorian invention powered by clockwork and steam. I wanted it to look complicated while not hindering playability or tone. A lot of hours went into the configuration of the cogs, hand-building the volume knob and naturally corroding the metal parts. Despite its appearance the guitar was not that heavy!

The SP-1 Deluxe was an update to this design, with more scroll work, an illuminated valve (tube) and a working voltmeter.
