When we think about the traditional solid body electric guitar, we tend to think about the different materials that goes into building such an instrument, such as the type of wood etc. I bet you would never even consider making an electric guitar out of a material as fragile and weak as cardboard, but then again – if you can think it, you can do it, and these guys did.
Watch this awesome video below:
What if everything could be made of cardboard? The team at Signal Snowboards (in collaboration with Ernest Packaging in Los Angeles) have been conducting experiments to see just how versatile the material is. So far, they have crafted and tested skateboards and snowboards with impressive results, and for their latest trial, Signal Snowboards partnered with master builders and musicians at Fender to see how a cardboard Stratocaster would shred, both literally and figuratively.
The best part of the video is seeing the reactions of Fender’s tuners and testers as they hold and play the one-of-a-kind guitar for the first time. Check it out above, and head to the Signal Snowboards YouTube page to see their other cardboard creations.
