As far as signature guitars go, Miku Kobato's new model might be the most ornate design we've seen in a while. But then again, it comes from Japanese builder Zemaitis Guitars, which is renowned for its elaborate body illustrations, and with whom the Band-Maid guitarist has conceived the A24MF-FP, also known – rather brilliantly – as the “Flappy Pigeon”.

Sporting an intricately engraved Duralumin top, the A24MF-FP is constructed of select African mahogany, and features a set-neck design and 24-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with custom inlays.

Further complementing its aesthetic is an original rose design on the left-hand side of the lower bout, as well as another “Flappy Pigeon” engraving on the truss rod cover.

Electronics include a pair of Zemaitis-designed Dragon Classic pickups, controlled via two volume and two tone knobs and a three-way selector switch.

Other features include a 25" scale length, Gotoh SG381-01 tuners, Matte Black finish and a bone nut.

While no details regarding pricing or availability of the A24MF-FP “Flappy Pigeon” are available as of yet, you can head over to Zemaitis Guitars for more info.
