Fender Crayolacaster and Cardboardcaster

I really like the pencil one. Having worked in a primary school where you always end up with numerous short, coloured pencils, that continually break when sharpened, this seems like the perfect end for those unloved stubbies.

Love the creativity and skill.

Do not read the comments. It's the usual saddos (who would say Jaco only needed 4 strings, in a Bass thread.)

I love stuff like this.

I wonder if anyone could tell the cardboard strat from a wooden one in a blind sound test?

Now that’s something I’d love to see... (hear?!)

Very cool. Reminds me a bit of when Taylor built a guitar out of palette wood just to prove that the build quality mattered more than so-called "tone wood". This sort of thing is going to become more important going forward, given environmental concerns. 

I am reminded a little too of the Switch brand guitars that were made from plastic polymer. THe possibilities there are something. Wheres with organic components you have to accept a certain level of variance, with these you could vary the composition to switch up the body sound, and then guarantee that one will sound the same as the one next to it. The thing will be convincing the luddite guitar player market - I remember being on Harmony Central when the Variax first appeared, and the mockery was vicious. One guy bought one and half of them fell over themselves to be among the first six dozen to post "enjoy your toy". Always thought that was ironic, given ho much more open to the new bassists are. Me, I'd love to have the option of a cool plastic body for my Strat (hell, plastic is what the pups are mounted in already.....). Enviro-friendly plastic, natch....
