Introduction: Cardboard Guitar

It occurred to me that anything you can create with Sketchup can be made into a large paper prototype.  So.. why not make a cardboard guitar and see how it sounds...?

It's made of white posterboard with rubber bands for strings...  I injected spray foam insulation into the neck to reinforce it and also used a segment of a soda bottle to form the neck support.   The tension of the rubber band strings is counteracted with a whole lot of white electrical tape pulling the back of the neck tightly to keep it all in balance.

How does it sound?   Well about like you'd expect..  Here's a sample...

That is great! Even if it didn't even make sound, it would still be a great build! Appreciate the creativity and ingenuity!

Kewl! I love the entro picture!

Seems like an awful lot of work for a guitar that sounds like crap.
