Shark guitar by Dans-Magic Shark guitar by Dans-Magic
Custom carved great white shark guitar. On the lower right there is a diver trying to hide from him. Onyx eye. Paua shell inlays for the bubbles.

I even inlaid the knobs with paua bubbles.

Was a fun piece. Made this one for my other daughter. :)

Started with a painted body. I took and sanded it down to bare wood then carved it like I would my waxes.

Some of my other work
<-- Another guitar I carved

EDIT: Thought I might add that I have a third guitar in the works. A bass guitar with a werewolf. Hoping to have it carved up soon. Finalizing the artwork. Will take work in progress photos of this one to show the process. :)

EDIT again: <-- Look at that! The lovely :iconbisho-s: did a wonderful piece of fan art with my guitar! Go share the love. :)

Wow, such a beautiful piece of art. Makes me want to learn how to play guitar, just to play on a guitar like this one.
How much time did it take you to make it?  It's ... it's ... it's awesome!!! :love:

Thank you :)

From start to finish it took about at least 100 hours because I took an existing guitar that was spray painted and sanded down through the fiberglass to the raw wood then started carving. I also had to refinish the neck because that had been painted as well.  It was a guitar I bought off a friend to have fun with.  Kinda cool what you can turn an old beat up guitar into huh?  Can't wait to do more.

Patience is key with wood and waxwork. Wood is so very unforgiving.

Beautiful piece you made!  I love the details you put into it, and the paua inlays make the bubbles look realistic.  Of course my favorite guitars are the Fender '57 Chevy and those Daisy guitars with the heart- and flower-shaped bodies.
