FSM Guitar

Published September 7th, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

Please see the attached picture of the FSM guitar I built. It debuted at the Center For Inquiry Indiana annual picnic. I have wanted to build this for three years and finally got it done. The guitar is a very playable instrument (but only while standing up). My friend, retired medical illustrator Craig Gosling (photo left) did the sketch for the body shape. I constructed the guitar and Eric Ward did the paint.

    Is there going to be any more creations from these guys? I’d love to see more FSM-themed instruments. Perhaps a FSM bass guitar?

        I would buy that in bass form. You make it and I’ll buy it.

    Is there an acoustic version?

    • Steve says:

      That might take a long time to make with all the wood bending for the noodly appendages.

    On a technical note can you tell me the spec/what the component parts are? You can’t have made a work of art like this using second rate bits!
