No longer must you search the galaxy to find this Rebel Bass, but you will have to wait at least 3 months to get it. Last Fall, after photos of his custom Star Wars guitars had gone viral online, Englishman Doni opened up shop on Etsy* to sell the grandaddy of his stringed sensations: the strummable Millennium Falcon. Now, despite the Rebel Bass' hefty price tag, fanboy orders have brought his handmade guitars' production speed down to well below warp. But if you've got the patience, you can still be one of a few people in the cosmos to own a fully functional P Bass-style guitar built into a plastic Millennium Falcon.

Doni notes the 4-string bass "produces a wonderful tone and with a half decent amp, you could amaze everyone by conquering all manner of riffs in less than 12 parsecs!" You can check out the video above and see if you agree. He recycles Millennium Falcon bodies from models issued between 1979 and 2004, and guarantees that they all range between good and perfect condition. To magnify both their galactic and rock & roll effect, he also installs a series of blue LEDs through the guitars, powered by a concealed battery pack.

*Update: Following a stint on Etsy, Doni launched his own website and online store. Now you can attack the Rebel Bass in a few different styles, including variations on a P Bass, PJ Bass, or Jazz Bass. Follow the link above to check them out.
