Dude Created A Custom Electric Guitar With 1200 Colored Pencils

One-of-a-kind electric guitars are not new. We have seen some pretty impressive custom guitar bodies thus far. No. Flying V isn’t one-of-a-kind guitar, but cardboard, “molten lava,” and skateboard guitar bodies are, and so is this: 1200 colored pencils guitar body. Redditor (Rockmann1), Imgur user (flyjumper) and YouTuber Burls Art has built himself a Fender Stratocaster-style electric guitar that has a body crafted out of 1,200 Crayola Colored Pencils.

KLOS Guitars 2.0: A Carbon Fiber Travel Guitar That Can Take The Beatings

Traveling musicians with a guitar on their back looks cool, but what these people didn’t tell you is, how their lovely instrument is susceptible to damage while on-the-road and that’s not to mention that it is cumbersome as hell. These nagging issues relating to traveling with guitar gave birth to (probably) the first hybrid carbon fiber body/wood neck guitar called KLOS Guitar. The guitar, which sports a less bulky form than traditional acoustic guitar, hits Kickstarter last year. A year on, the brothers behind KLOS Guitar, Ian and Adam Klosowiak, is back with a second version that is said to be lighter, stronger and even better sounding.

Cardboard Fender Stratocaster Looks As Awesome As It Sounds

We have seen a myriad of stuff made out of cardboard, including a bicycle and even a car. So, it seems like nothing is impossible for cardboard, right? Well, for regular folks, cardboard will be cardboard and it has got to have some limits, but as far as Ernest Packaging is concerned, that statement holds true. If creating a snowboard, a skateboard and even a surfboard out of cardboard aren’t enough to prove the point that paper can create anything, perhaps, the company’s latest creation, a cardboard-based Fender Stratocaster guitar, would serve to reinforced the notion that paper can be made into anything if you have the expertise and willingness to try.

Molten Lava Diabolical Guitar Has Glowing Lava That Look So Hot And Cool At The Same Time

Don’t be alarmed. The Molten Diabolic Guitar by Hutchinson Guitar Concepts you see here is not actually forged from real molten lava, so as hot as it looks, you will only look uber cool shredding it. Hell, you will look cool even without the need to do anything. However, if the town of Tristram beneath did have heavy metal bands, this would no doubt be the guitar of choice and it would probably be made from hell’s fire spewed out of Satan’s lair. Though, it probably won’t be based on a Ibanez Mahogany body guitar like the Molten Diabolic Guitar did. So, the sound should be pretty sweet. Though, it can’t be helped if Ibanez ain’t your cuppa.

Skateboard Deck Electric Guitar Will Make You Shred The Axe In An Unconventional Way

There are guitars and then there’s guitar that can’t be played in a traditional way, like this one cobbled up by NYC-based design firm Stereotank, called Lap Skate Guitar. While it may sounds like it is a skateboard that doubles as an electric axe, it is not. In fact, it wasn’t even upcycled from an old deck; it is built out of a blank skateboard deck, decked out with the requisite electric guitar components like a 1/4-inch output jack, tremolo, an electric guitar bridge, a lone guitar pick up, a volume knob, a lock nut, six tuning pegs and a set of six guitar strings.

Gittler Titanium Guitar

just when we thought the Stash Stainless Steel Bass was crazy, Gittler Instruments up the ante by going all titanium for its minimalist bass and guitar. based on the design by the late founding father of Gittler Instruments, the Titanium Guitar does without the cumbersome body, head, and even the neck. headless guitar has been around since the 70s so we shouldn’t be all surprised, but Gittler goes even further by omitting the body and neck altogether. well, technically speaking, it still has a neck, just that now it is in a barebone form, meaning the supporting structure and rounded frets, all 31 of them, are fully exposed like skeletons. the guitar minimalist design employs, almost in its entirety, rounded cylindrical elements and is completely crafted from 6AL-4V aircraft grade titanium for durability and style factor.
