No, you didn't forget to put on your glasses! These fractured, yet crafted, random yet profoundly organized instruments are the creations of Phil Sylvester of Pheo Guitars. They are the very epitome of functional art - they play, beautifully, even startlingly well. They are consummate instruments that press hard at the boundaries of what we normally think an instrument "should" be. From Pheo you will find remarkable guitars and amplifiers made from found objects and crafted elements - old instrument parts, hairdryers, grills, vacuum cleaners, etc. all deconstructed and reassembled into a whole that only vaguely resembles, and certainly transcends it's origins.
These instruments posses functionality you won't find anywhere else. For instance, the "Pheo UN" has its pickups mounted on a typewriter mechanism so they can be repositioned on the fly!
