Steampunk guitar with clockwork gears and a lot more

There isn’t a dying out phase for Steampunk mania, as applying technologies of the industrial era onto technologies of the modern era is a work well done with steam, brass and wood. Previously seen on the Villanizer and the like, it’s now time for an electric guitar to get the steam treatment. Built for the 2008 Jersey City Artists Studio Tour by Mark Dalzell, the Steampunk guitar, Organum Insolitus features a television with Fresnel lens magnifier, onboard phaser, an amplifier and uses clockwork gears, hand hammered brass, cloth wire and wood for its making. The freakin’ guitar can also be attached to an external amp via a standard ¼-inch cable, setting up the beastly guitar as game to steam some endless music.
