    Crushed it! Who doesn't want Smeagol on their fretboard?! $10, cool!

    Wait, what, $10,000; ahh yeah, that's going to stay in his client's private collection. Along with the LoR action figures, limited edition VHS, DVD and BluRays, posters signed by the cast, Frodo cape, Gandalf staff, elf shoes, dragon scales (limited edition signed replica!) and The Next Generation TriCorder!

    Not so much the concept but the execution that I don't like. Some of the details and inlays look amateurish.

    The ring for the soundhole is a clever idea and so are the two towers tailpiece. The inlays though...oof.

    Plot.

    Or potentially cause the Nazgul would have ripped them to shreds and they only faced them in the final battle due to the necessity of the situation.

    It was a bold choice to have have a sixth grader draw the characters on the guitar with colored pencils.

    It's local. I could undertake to cast it into a nearby lake of fire if anyone can point one out...

    Frodo didn’t have enough frequent flyer miles to take Sam with him, so they decided to walk.

    I'd walk a thousand miles on foot just to throw that thing into an active volcano.

    Yeah, but how much does it weigh? Remember, Bilbo and Frodo had such a hard time carrying the "weight" of the ring, can you imagine the weight of a ring GUITAR?!?

    Is that Elvish writing on the headstock? Contest, WHAT does the writing say? I'll go first:

    Elves Rule, Goblins Drool!
