Steampunk artisan Molly “Porkshanks” Friedrich (right) modded this awesome violin for Nathan Johnstone (left) of Abney Park. The faux vacuum tubes have LEDs inside and flash colors as the strings vibrate. The violin will premier at tonight’s Abney Park performance at Maker Faire, along with Culann’s Hounds, on the Main Music Stage (West Parking Lot).
