instrument-a-day 1: lumpy guitar

To warm up for this year's month of making an instrument a day, and to advertise the junk guitar workshop this saturday: an especially primitive junk guitar.

Found wood, guitar strings, zither pins, scrap acrylic bridges, and a weird overhead pickup made of crudely-wound wire and a magnet out of a dead hard drive.

  1. god damn you! I just made 2 of these, just haven’t put them online yet… I used a 9V electric motor for a pickup though, drilled a hole on each side of the casing and got the wire to go straight through it… sounds brilliant!
