[PHOTO] Steampunk Artist Dr. James Avelgaard’s Playable Battle-Axe Bass Guitar


What is that, some kind of lute? Nope. It’s an awesome, completely playable reproduction of the battle ax-turned-Ax Bass belonging to Marceline, our favorite Vampire Queen, from Adventure Time. It was handcrafted by San Francisco-based steampunk artist Dr. James Avelgaard.

This is actually the second working Ax Bass that Avelgaard has made. The first one was made as a working cosplay accessory. Click here to listen to it play(and while you’re at it, here’s Marceline playing hers).

Click here for additional photos of this fantastic instrument. It’s currently available for purchase via the Avelgaard Etsy shop.
