We thought we''d heard of everything, especially after yesterday''s "Riffs" featuring the Heineken keg can 5W amp. Well, if you like the rumble of a hog between your legs, you may love the rumble between your fingertips with this guitar. Created by Woody B, calling home Coupeville, WA, who claims to have been turned onto this idea for the Internal Combustion Guitar way back in 1967 when he first met Hendrix and felt the vibration of Jimi''s Marshalls.
