Hero in a half shell

What, no effects loop or onboard power attenuator?
What, no effects loop or onboard power attenuator?

Here at MusicRadar, we´ve seen some odd things in our daily trawls of the Blogosphere, and today is no exception.

We´ve seen guitar amps housed in old cigarette packets, a pedal designed to look like a landmine, the ‘60s Sears Silvertone guitar with an amp in its case, the Skeletar, and guitars that resemble genitalia.

Cooler than all of these, in our opinion, is this guitar amplifier made from a coconut shell.

The perfect accompaniment to the soothing sounds of beachside Hawaiian guitar, as we sip a Malibu cocktail with the waves lapping gently at the shoreline just yards away.

If only.
