Ak-47 Turned into a Electric Guitar

Who said guns are only used to kill people? They can play music too! That’s what designer César López did with an old decommissioned AK-47. He turned it into a electric guitar and plays them on the streets of Bogota.

The instrument is called as Escopetarra, a combination of the Spanish terms “rifle” (escopeta) and guitar (guitarra). López does not sell any of his creations nor receives money from his music, rather he expects listenrs to take away his words, “in the end the gun dies and the guitar is born”

Here’s a video of César López performing with his Escopetarra.

Does it still shoot? Oh no! So don’t chicken out when you see someone with a rifle-guitar in his hand ;)

Reuse, Reduce, Recycle.
