old guitars are not hard to find. if you get a crappy student guitar with the bridge ripped out your not going to spend a lot of money to fix it. ive bought wrecked guitars for as low as a dollar at yard sales.

"making a box guitar is super simple and fun to make and play, it only cost me around 6 dolllars to make." Oh yeah, and a guitar. You better find another way to make a guitar neck, because the odds of me ripping up my guitar for parts are zero.

necks can be made. the kicker is , you MUST buy the strings and hardware :-( that's where old beat up guitars come in. $7.50 for an 16 string(without strings) , spray painted glow-in-the-dark green, at the local good will. Your mileage may vary.
