eBay item 150125503090 was a custom-made Stratocaster covered in LEDs, designed by Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran. It was build by Sims Custom Shop, who are based in Kent and are your source for all kinds of LED/Guitar craziness (including making a laser slide for John Paul Jones). Nich Rhodes' guitar, complete with the software and the laptop to make it work, sold for £3,200.

How much!? Damn, why wasnt I told about this auction?
this is a brilliant piece of work thought up by the always brilliant and innovative and creative nick rhodes. what will he think of next??? he almost never gets recognized for his talent or his creativity. i still think john and simon are hotter, though.
by an accident I happened across a youtube video of kiss performing I Was Made For Lovin' You Baby, I think it's the actual video. Ace Frehley is playing a similarly styled-LED guitar, though his resolution is a little lower.
When new technology becomes cheaper lot of un-tasty and stupid things happen when it comes to design like tis blue LEDs and laser guitars. I would be ashamed to design such a thing even people would actually buy it. Why... because so many people today have no taste at all. Just take a look at todays music scene.
