Police in Sweden seize an arsenal of guns daily, but this shotgun guitar must be the most odd find yet. The police received a tip stating that a 54-yea- old man was hoarding a vast array of unlicensed firearms in his home, leading the police to raid his house. Little did they know they would find the kind of pop-cultural piece that can only come from a cult film like Desperado.

The neck of the shotgun guitar was hollowed out, allowing for two shotgun barrels. The body of the string instrument has all the basic functions of a trigger mechanism. In the man's home was also a homemade sub-machine gun along with other traditional weapons and ammunition amongst evidence that he was buying and selling guns in conjunction with known gangs.
