ELECTRIC-GUITAR

Behold the geektastic wonders that are two, count them, two different custom-made Millennium Falcon guitars. One is a 6-string electric guitar, the other a 4-string bass. Created by Doni’s Custom Guitars in Coventry, England, both are made using beautifully detailed, completely original Millennium Falcon models for the bodies and are fully functional musical instruments. They’re also both available for pre-order via the Doni’s Custom Guitars Etsy shop, but there’s currently a 3-month-long waiting list.

“The original Millennium Falcon bodies are always in good condition, some even perfect – it varies considering they’re from anywhere between 1979 and 2004. Some also never had any lights included and so plenty of blue LEDs are expertly installed by myself and are run from a handily concealed battery pack that is easy to get to.”

But wait, there’s more. Doni’s Custom Guitars also makes a Custom Flight Case for both models. She may not look like much, but she’s had a lot of special modifications and deserves to be transported in style.

Visit the Doni’s Custom Guitars Etsy shop for additional information about these awesome instruments.

Universally hailed as the king of the blues, the legendary B.B. King is without a doubt the single most important electric guitarist of the last half century. His bent notes and staccato picking style have influenced legions of contemporary bluesmen, while his gritty and confident voice – capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric – provides a worthy match for his passionate playing. Between 1951 and 1985, King notched an impressive 74 entries on Billboard’s R&B charts, and he was one of the few full-fledged blues artists to score a major pop hit when his 1970 smash “The Thrill Is Gone” crossed over to mainstream success (engendering memorable appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show and American Bandstand). Since that time, he has partnered with such musicians as Eric Clapton and U2 while managing his own acclaimed solo career, all the while maintaining his immediately recognizable style on the electric guitar.
