Gibson guitar gets blinged out
Kim Webber, a respected luthier, spent 12 months decorating the musical instrument, which has been described as a one-off – it is estimated to be worth Â£10,000.
Mr Webber, 55, has not only decorated the body, he's also dotted gems around the frets.
"It was a guitar that a customer brought me just over a year ago and somebody had a go at inlaying it with plastic shapes and he basically wanted it done properly," Mr Webber told the Press Association.
"He had this idea about inlaying it with semi-precious shell and we tinkered about and I came up with the idea of using gold mother of pearl, white mother of pearl and sea shells awabi and abolone and I got a couple of designs for him and went for it."
It is believed that the custom-designed electric guitar will pick up interest from collectors who will be curious about the investment potential of such a rare musical instrument.
