Thanks to Shane Speal for letting us know about this oddity.
In the pictures shown here you can see an "End of the Road Stratocaster Guitar" that was designed to look smashed—but it (apparently) plays just fine.
The guitar was listed on eBay with a "buy it now" price of £475 (about $735). It has just been sold to one lucky bidder.
The guitar, the original listing for which can be seen here on eBay in the U.K., comes with the following description:
"Have you always wanted to do a [Pete] Townshend and smash your axe? Or be like Jimi [Hendrix] and set it alight? But you're just too worried that you'll never be able to play it again? Don't fear! Devil & Sons Guitars has been there and done that for you.
"Made from new components, with a road-worn and damaged appearance, End of the Road guitars play like untouched guitars."
