Introduction: Miniature Guitar (6.5" Tall)
This is a 6.5” tall miniature replica of my guitar. This is one of those projects that i wish I had documented so that I could make a step by step. I won't lie to you, this was very difficult. Some of the components are so small they broke in my hands so they took several attempts.

For all the Friends fans out there, i'm pretty sure this is the same as one of Phoebes many guitars. I'm not 100% sure but if anyone can confirm this I would love to hear from you (Yamaha F-310).
