Legocaster- By Jason Jillard (pics are up)

right. well i started this.. build.. about a week ago. its a stratocaster. made of lego. mhmm.


VIDEO ADDED! 2/14/11


if everyone could please watch, rate, and re-post this to yoru facebook or twitter pages! that would really go a long way for me.

thanks guys!

SO. pics will be up shorty of the progress work, then i will update it as it is completed.

but basically this is what i did.

I got me old squire strat.

then i cut it in 3.



thennnnn. i dressed the sides flat. and dressed a peice of cherry to go on eitehr side of the original body.



during all this i got roughly 500 lego bricks. and started constructing the wings of the guitar..out of lego...




i just need to finish up the woodworking part, and epoxy everything together.


ETC 1 week.
