Well i had some spare time last few days (due to constant raining and such) and was bored a bit.Usually in such circumstances i would play guitar all day but since i am back home all my gear is left in city.So i found few planks of scrap wood,3 guitar strings,old machine head and some old speaker to serve as pickup and made a working electric guitar.Result of 3 hours of work (mostly finding tools and screws around the house) i is this 3 strings electric guitar.

which sounds pretty nice when plugged into laptop mic-in and processed through Guitar Rig 4.
Give it a listen here:

Well it all started since i needed something to exercise my fingers since i am away from my gear. it ended up with 3 strings and speaker pickup its so fun to play though its a bitch to tune ... i'll try to tune it properly and make some proper play-demo ,so that we can all hear how fun is to play it

That's pretty kwel.

I've been thinking of doing something similar, or creating some weird string-instruments after watching a short doucmentary about DIY noise/experimental musicians (can't remember the name at all, it was very inspiring though).

I am working on new ,proper 6 string model now (gathering material and developing parts )-biggest problem is finding good carpenter to cut body/neck (it is going to be narrow one piece ).I am bit worried about string tension and how would whole piece of wood react after all that cutting and punching holes in it ...

Considering the needed strength of a wood ,how easy is to process it ,costs and overall quality i think i will make next model from black locust ("Robinia pseudoacacia") which around here grows like weed and its everywhere and i have a few tones of it laying in my backyard ...i also might make a fretboard out of cherry wood ...
