I know it's not a CBG. It's a CBValiha. And it succeeds in the unusual category...

Okay, so you can't play it. It is strictly an art piece but sculpting it made me look into building playable pieces. Freely moving beads that spell out "TWANG" are strung on 17 strings. The body is hollow and made from MDF. The neck is oak.
