Gothic style cardboard & leather recycled guitar

Hi there,

I make one new recycled guitar, in my own Gothic shape and style.

Is made all from cardboard & used lather , also the neck and the peg , except the fingerboard (wood).
You can play with it as a normal acoustic guitar or electric acoustic with pick-up or as electric with magnet.

At the moment i put only some photos and in a few days i put here and video.

Thanks
Chris

Very cool indeed! Fit a PU and play through a Dual Recto or Bogner.

Hi guys,

You can play with this guitar with 3 different way.
As a normal acoustic, electro acoustic, or electric guitar.

Has a piezzo electric pick up and magnet pick up.

Is artistic & eco- recycled and this one is for the Hobgoblin music stores in London UK.

Thanks

Thatís one of the best new body designs Iíve seen in years. You should make friends with a luthier and build a functional solidbody with that shape.

I dont think he said your guitar is'nt functional, he said you should make a "solidbody" with that shape.

Hi guys,

Thank you very much .

Yes, the guitar sound very good and my recycled instruments after some months have a better sound, because the varnish i use, dry slowly.

After some months the instruments they loose 20% of the weight and made more strong.

Today the night or tomorrow i put and the other video with the same guitar ,but as electric this time.

Chris.
