The laser emitter end, which is the valve cap from a baritone (about a half-size Tuba, for those of you non-musical types).

*sigh* no, I'm afraid not...just looks and feels pretty....although, considering the musical instrument parts that went into it, it would be funny to be able to play music with it.... :lol:

I can assure you that no harm was brought to working instruments! :P Nice thing about being a music teacher in the inner city public schools is that I have access to the school district's instrument boneyard, where old beat up and worn out instruments are sent to be picked of usable parts and then junked.

The laser emitter end

Lightsabers don't emit laser light, they emit plasma energy :thumbsup:

Yeah, I'm a nerd.

You're correct but unfortunately the term "laser sword" was used on the prequel movies.

George Lucas said everything in his SW world should be believable but had to have a strange and not-from-this-earth name, and then he writes "laser sword" on the scripts. Go figure...

Good observation...although it could easily be chalked up to a kid talking about stuff he doesn't FULLY understand...speaking as a teacher, this is an everyday occurrance.

I think thats exactly what it is, Anakin sees the lightsabre and knows what it is but doesnt know its correct name.

Yeah, but it's always painful to see George himself talk about "laser swords" in interviews. The man should hypothetically be the biggest Star Wars geek on the planet, but he doesn't even use his own terminology. It's frankly a little disappointing. IT'd be like Tolkien talking about "little midget people" instead of "hobbits"
