The robots of Ghost in the Shell have inspired real-life remakes but the Tachikoma GT might be the first of its kind.

The electric blue headless guitar is a completely original design conceived and handmade by the TC Gakku store in Shinjuku.

The instrument has a built-in EL Neon light board along the neck, the Public Security Section 9 logo at the top, and the robot's bowling ball-like eyes work as the guitar's volume and tone controls. Each guitar costs 756,000 yen (US$7,048) and comes with a serial number and certificate.

The guitar is also on display at the Production I.G store in Shibuya. The store is also displaying the 1/2-size Tachikoma until May 8 and will launch its virtual reality campaign with a three-minute teaser video on May 14-15. Visitors can experience the video using a VR headset.
