Another special touch I've planned for this guitar is electronics. Not guitar electronics - for the pickup wiring I'll stick to standard things. I want to add some actual detector elements to the guitar to follow the general theme. What I have in the photo below is a pixel detector prototype. 

Believe or not - this is not just a plain piece of silicone of about 1mm x 1mm. It is in fact a state-of-the-art detector prototype in which the tine surface is divided into about four thousand independent readout "pixels" designed to detect particle tracks in a high energy collision experiment.

I'm planning to somehow embed one or more of these in the guitar volume knob, as decoration. Stay tuned for my first foray into the world of resin casting.
