It’s not a secret that I’m completely in love with steampunk guitars (even though I don’t play myself). So for today I have three stores / artists that sell steampunk guitars.

Also, if you or someone you know owns a steampunk(-ish) instrument I would really like it if you would send me a picture of it. Why? I simply like them a lot and would like to post more instrument pictures on this blog, but I simply can’t find any.

Diptych dials became popular during the 16th and 17th centuries. They were used as portable timepieces. The sun was used for telling time during the day, and the moon at night. Miller was a famous instrument maker who worked in Nuremberg. Not all sundials were signed, but many bore punchmarks of the makers, in this case a fleur-de-lys. Source
