Long back story:

So, back in September when I was just starting lutherie school, I began noticing that people were throwing away rather large pieces of good wood because they weren't big enough to use on a new guitar. The pack-rat in me started pulling out all the nicest pieces out of the trash and stashing them underneath my bench. This continued on for a few months, and by then I had an impressive amount of random wood bits piled up. Sometime in mid-November (I think, the time at school all blurs together in my mind) I had this amazing idea to try and glue together a bunch of random pieces of wood and make a new body for this cheap electric guitar I had lying around; something Picasso-esque. So I did, and it was pretty freaking cool, but I wasn't happy with it. The neck was really bland in comparison to the body. The only solution was to toss the crappy neck and make a new one out of scraps! Eventually my busy schedule took over and the project was shelved. But this past March I picked it back up, and behold! The "Scrapocaster" was born!







Surprisingly, it plays pretty decently (at least for the sub-par construction I put into it). It's rather comfortable too, being extra thin and weighing a mere 6 lbs. Afro.gif

Very inventive! I like the entire concept of it.
And a 6 lb. guitar is the type I'd play.

Thanks for the all the compliments. I wasn't really trying to go for an "environmentally friendly" guitar when I made this (is anything REALLY environmentally friendly?), but I guess it would be a good marketing point if ever decide to start selling stuff like this!

wow that's so Fire Trucking awesome... not to mention my guitar weighs as much as like a corvette bass so the light weightedness makes it extra awesome.
