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. =)

Luke Skywalker: Thank you guys for working together to pay the bills. We're way way in the black for this year and most likely part of next year and we still have 40 coins to go. All but six coins have shipped as of this morning. I needed a few clarifications for them.
