Now, the intrepid luthier is back with another wild build, this time putting together an “infinity mirror guitar,” the build process of which is documented in the above video.
Burls Art started the build by hollowing out the guitar's body until only its frame was left, then built its top and back pieces with clear acrylic. The back piece of acrylic was then sprayed with a gloss silver paint, while the inside of the top and back was covered with two-way mirror film.
The body frame was then lined with customizable LED lights that can be animated through an app.
Elsewhere, the guitar features a single humbucker, a string-through-body bridge and a neck and fretboard finished in gloss silver, like the back of the body. It weighs just over six pounds.
