Traditional Japanese Carvings And Guitars Unite To Create The Most Metal Music Instruments Ever

Published 5 years ago

Wood carvings and wooden guitars aren’t a common pairing, but Japan doesn’t care about that. Inamichoukoku – the Inami Wood Carving Collective – has turned its traditional wood-craft skills to the production of guitars. Usually, Japanese Inami-style wood carvings adorns temples and shrines. But this art was created to adorn the stages of metal concerts! The big brown dragon guitar is the crowning jewel of the entire line – it’s absolutely massive, and has more than a passing resemblance to a sword. And that is very metal.

Such levels of craftsmanship aren’t cheap: the least-expensive guitar goes for 1,000,000 yen (about $10,000) while the magnificent dragon is priced at 1,950,000 (~$19,500).
