33% Guitar + 33% Mandolin + 33% Theremin = 100% Awesome

by Paul Strauss

The guys over at synthopia hunted up this wondrous electrical musical oddity, and I love it.

The Destroyer combines an electric guitar, mandolin and that wonderful outer-spacey-squealy instrument – the theremin – in one compact package.

Handmade by guitar artist Mark Dalzell, The Destroyer is has two necks – one for the 6-string guitar, the other for the 4-string mandolin. The third protrusion? An antennae for controlling the on-board Thermaniacs’ theremin. There’s also a full set of on-board digital effects for distortion, chorus and flanger, as well as a built-in chromatic tuner. And how about those LED fret markers and pickup indicators? All I can say is “awesome”.

Check out the full gallery of pics over at Mark’s flickr album.
