Jeff Ritzmann of Thunder Eagle Custom Guitars makes fantastic art guitars. His latest efforts are in the 'Steampunk' genre, and are making quite the splash across the art, gadget, and guitar cultures. Featured in Wired, Brass Goggles, and Gizmodo, The Nautilus is a fantastic blend of art and guitar technology.
Not only does it look great, it sounds great. Here's a video of The Nautilus in action:
The Villanizer, the first Steampunk guitar Jeff made, is also very neat. Comparing the two guitars you can see how the Steampunk theme is progressing and being refined. It will be interesting to see what Jeff comes up with next!
