Since the dawn of guitar time people have been making strangely shaped guitars in attempts to gain rock god status. Sometimes it’s part of an attempt to create a unique sound, at other times it’s part of an attempt to look really, really cool. It’s the design equivalent of stuffing a cucumber wrapped in foil down your pants. But ‘Nerfenstein’ doesn’t need to stuff a cucumber down her pants to attain rock god status because, firstly, she’s a girl and that would be silly. But also because she has created a really bloody amazing guitar made out of a Nerf gun.
Alright, well that was a really weird introduction. Moving on…
Nerfenstein is an Australian girl who makes awesome props — like this Tomb Raider thing — and she also occasionally makes things out of nerf guns. This functional guitar is, obviously, a functional guitar but it also still fires nerf bullets. I think that’s pretty amazing.
“This is a really cool Nerf mod for a few reasons, one everyone automatically looks cooler when they sling an electric guitar, two it has a built in sling and three, well it looks badass to fire foam darts out of a guitar lol,” said Nerfenstein in a full blog post, going into detail on how the mod was built.
“This one took a LONG time to pull together,” she said, “fiddly bits like adding the strings took a long time, but all the fiddling was worth it!”
