[Movies] Man Makes Guitars Out Of Star Wars Starships
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.15.2013



A man has made a hobby out of making guitars out of Star Wars starships. The Sun spoke with sixty-four year-old UK resident Tom Bingham, who makes guitars out of items like chessboards, vinyl records, cricket bats and has turned to Star Wars-themed guitars made from models of the Millennium Falcon and more.

Bingham told the site, "I originally started making cigar box guitars but I got bored. Now I just make them out of anything. I saw a picture of a Millennium Falcon on the internet years ago and did my own version... I use a replica and attach a neck to it. With the Falcon I even put flashing LED lights in the back."

Bingham notes that the guitars take about three months to finish, noting, "The important thing is you have to make the body very rigid. I had to take the Millennium Falcon kits apart to their 140 odd pieces and rebuild it so it supports the neck I attach it to... It isn't easy and took hours painstakingly building it every day."

He has no plans currently to sell the guitars but said he plans to make more and said, "I've got a bit of an obsession with it now, it's my hobby, one thing just leads to another."
