A Carrot Guitar!

Yes! another of those "well I thought I saw everything" discoveries - a carrot shaped guitar.

Kjell Arne Nordli from Norway is an avid carrot collector and the only one in Europe!

The "diamond" of his collection is a hand made full scale, working electric guitar! which he has used on several occasions.

The guitar was specially designed and built for him by the famous Norwegian Luthier Oivind Fjeld in 1996. It was stolen after a gig a couple of years ago, but was returned in perfect condition last summer.
 

The main technical specifications are:

Scale: 25.5" / 648mm
Body: Honduras mahogany (1 piece)
Neck/Fingerboard: Flamed maple
Pickups: Seymour Duncan
Finish: Nitro cellulose laquer.
Tuners: Gotoh SG 38

Also shown below is a photo of Mr. Oivind Fjeld with the guitar in his workshop.
