From removing his socks with a handbuilt rocket launcher to creating a working homemade hoverbike, garage inventor Colin Furze has somehow managed to keep his limbs intact over the past few months – which is saying a lot, because his projects as of late have been getting bigger, faster and certainly a lot more explosive.
With tea kettles, prams, go-karts, bicycles and ejector beds behind him, Furze’s latest takes rock n’ roll to a new level in the form of the Flamethrowing Guitar and the Smoking/Strobing Bass.
“I’ve been creating these wonderful machines as making anything doesn’t just mean solving a problem or making life easier,” says Furze. “It can also be to just make you feel good – and it did feel pretty rockin’ to stand on top of my house with this amazing guitar.”
As always, the best part of any Furze project is his build process, which borders perfectly between mad genius and totally insane:
Making a Smoking/Strobing Bass
I asked you what mods you would like to see me make to guitars and you just about all said you want to see a Flamethrower Guitar, so to warm you all up I’ve made a little extra in the form of a Bass Guitar that emits smoke and has built-in strobes.
Making a Flamethrowing Guitar
I asked you what you wanted to see me put on a guitar and you all said FLAMETHROWER……so here’s me putting it together.
