Crazy Russian modders have one-upped themselves yet again by creating an absolutely absurd guitar made out of 106 iPhones (and one iPod touch).

The one-of-a-kind working guitar, with a neck based on a 1999 Fender Telecaster, is being sold by Moscow-based guitar shop Copper Guitars. We’ve seen some pretty wild ways to repurpose old Apple devices, but this is the most metal one yet. And it could be yours for just over $6,000.

Take a closer look:

We can't speak to how good this guitar made of iPhones sounds.

Created by Artem Mayer at Copper Guitars, the iPhone guitar weighs just over 8 pounds. Mayer made the body by creating a bed of iPhones, then outlining the guitar shape to cut out. The side is open so you can see the material inside. Adding a clear band around the body so crap doesn’t get in it would have been a nice touch, though.

The high-tech ax boasts custom Fokin pickups and a mahogany neck with Jescar frets.

Copper Guitars originally listed the iPhone guitar for just over $1 million. That price has been cut down dramatically, though. Now you can get it for a little over $6,000. The one-of-a-kind guitar comes with a hard case but you’ll have to pay extra for shipping. You can hear it in action at the end of this “making of” video:
