    He might be a candidate for your gum school...

    John Denver would be proud.

    That sounds good.

    That's the weird thing. It sounds pretty nice. But I'd imagine it has all the tensile strength of chipboard, and about as much resonance. Apart from all those soft crayon cores, the grain is running totally the wrong way. Imagine what the guy could achieve using... actual wood!

    Mabe he should have built it on a plywood core, with the pencils on the top, bottom and sides. With enough epoxy, it would be strong enough for guitar use, I think.

    Racing boats are made from honeycomb cardboard, maybe the pencils give it some of that same cell strength?

    Maybe the wax gives it that great sound?

    Remember this one?



    What cracks me up is you can see the action is really bad, but the guy tries to disguise the fact it's really hard to play by using a ton of delay and fast right hand picking.

    Which gives us plenty of good time to do stuff like this.

    That doesn't look like a whole lot of fun, to be honest.

    What was all that gurgling about? I thought they were just going to let him die drowning in his own pain. Looking closely at the staircase, I have a sense that they have left the steps out of the build.

    This guitar would give me a lot of inspiration to draw from.



    Yeah, I'll just leave then...

    Another interpretation is that it’s consistent with all the demonstrations of how little the type, size, or shape of the wood in an electric guitar makes. Pencils, cardboard, ash, alder, mahogany...it’s far more about aesthetics than tone.
