On Facebook I'm part of a custom sabers page, and this user who plays guitar for Blue Oyster Cult came up with a Brian May (guitarist from Queen) sound font he dubbed the "Red Special" for his Mace Windu lightsaber. This inspired me to build a lightsaber combining 2 loves of mine. Guitar and lightsabers. =)
So the idea was.........what if Eddie Van Halen was a Jedi in the Star Wars universe. What would his saber look like? What would it sound like? What color would the blade be? So this is what I came up with.
The saber has a Nano Biscotte V3 Soundboard with a Blue LED and White Flash on Clash. One sound font is from Nova Star called "Episode V Ice Planet Assault" and the sound font demonstrated in the video is a sound font I put together to better fit the Eddie Van Halen meets Star Wars Theme.
Hilt was painted by Shaun Redman at Redman Customs here in Memphis.
Hopefully I don't get too much heat for painting a Korbanth Graflex 2.0, but I had a vision in mind and this vision came true and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
For the record, I WOULD NEVER PAINT A REAL GRAFLEX FLASH GUN. =)

methos: Money can't buy happiness... but it can buy lightsabers, which is damn close

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.

ZahcStarKiller: djcbooks81, My collection is getting pretty fat as well. Three graflex, luke V2, Phoenix Props Kylo, Orbital Machining Obi, and a few custom sabers. Will be looking for a Qui Gon soon, and then I'll be starting to acquire every saber variant from the OT.

ZahcStarKiller: Then the PT. Must have a good Maul and a few clan sabers. The lady of the house just approved my idea of doing a cantina in one of our huge spare bedrooms, so I am starting a Hn in Carbonite (full size) this summer and will probably be starting an R2 also.
