Gasoline powered guitar

probably the only prop I never saw on MTV back in the old days when they actually had music videos

What else can be said? hmmmm---Ted Nugent? (motor city mad man) Ozzy is pretty big on props, I could picture his guitarist with one. It would be great to strum at your local Earth Day celebration!!!

       What, in a guitar, needs to be powered? Amplifiers need power, but if the gasoline is used for this you just have a mobile generator, as baked at thousands of outdoor gigs.

       I think you need to read this a bit better it is NOT seen on mtv and its a PROP wich means its not real, I'm guessing this is a guitar with an engine on it, no doubt metalica fans and bogans would love this, and bogan metalica fans would cream themselves.

       st3f: please read the summary again
Ratita de Bodega, Aug 16 2002

       So I guess, Ratita, the only thing you never saw is baked since it is the obvious thing left once you eliminate all the things you did see...

       If you had a tiny model airplane engine in a guitar, you could adjust the amount of fuel by pressing against fuel feedlines where the frets are & hence alter the tone. Maybe a REAl 'flying V' at last!

       "...probably the only prop I *NEVER* saw on MTV..."
Emphasis mine.

       Ratita: As correctly pointed out by Gulherme, phoenix and yourself, I completely misread the summary line. (MFD removed). I'm apologise for any trouble caused. Sorry.

       Hey. I am a guitar player myself and I think this is a great idea. If it ever comes out, I will use one in my band sometimes. Most of the time, Im sticking to my wonderful electric.

       Back to angel's question - what part of a guitar needs powered?
namaste, Aug 17 2002

       don't you think that a gasoline powered guitar would make a lot of noise?

       I've seen an electric guitar with a built in gas powered chain saw on The Tom Green show, which aired on MTV. It was fully functional as well.

       If your guitar were to catch fire and burn the audience would probably think it was part of the act, and applaud.

       To do this right one would need to be able to slow down the piston fire speed so that the gas engine would keep time for you.

       Why slow it down ? speed the RPM's up well into the audio range and use it for counterpoint melodies.

       Reversing is the usual problem, not to mention double declutching on earlier models. Can't be doing with those flapple-paddle things myself.
