    I don't really understand the point of steampunk if all of the gears and things don't even DO anything.

    if they were constructed to actually be integral to the device's function, then I'd think it's cool, since they're not, it's just tacky stick-on stuff

    Do you really think that everything in e.g. a sport car is just functional and only that?

    Absolutely wonderful, even saw a couple of pop references in there. I loved the collection. Especially the gears, so many gears! The machined nail studs, and the brassy color of everything else.

    Anyways, @I_Cant has a point...when the mechanisms work, it's like ten times more awesome...

    For example, in haute horlogerie (lol, just the words already sounds hipster...), as pointed out, all that little gears have a porpouse...although a 30$ Cassio is more precise than a 100K bucks tourbillon

    But the drooling factor...

    I have always hated steampunk... I don't know why.
    Can't explain it even.

    Love cyberpunk though...

    I mean, I can appreciate aesthetics, but in my mind the true beauty in a machine is its workings, all of those gears and levers and drive chains and everything working in perfect harmony...

    adding on too much non-functional stuff just dilutes it.

    If it's loaded with EMGs or other active pickups then there's a chance it will sound decent, but yeah, if it's passive it will sound horrible.

    They'd still sound better than whatever's in that guitar, though. Granted I'd never use EMGs (both my basses are loaded with Nordstrands).

    Love the visceral interaction of the gears, the precision of the craftmanship on the OP's. They are truly things of beauty.

    Not so much on the swords, but that's just a personal thing. I can see how one could appreciate the craftsmanship in those as well.

    Of course, these opinions are from someone who has a girl getting a golf ball in the arse in his sig :D
