DIY 5$ Cardboard Electric Guitar

Build an electric guitar for no cost except for the app that you use to play!

Step 1: Materials

1. Cardboard Box

2. Razor

3. Glue

4. Sharpie

Step 2: Cut the Tabs Off

Cut the tabs off so you have two nice rectangles.

Step 3: Draw Your Outline

Whatever style you like to play or want your guitar to look like you want to get an outline that fits that.

Step 4: Cut It Out

Cut the first side out. Pretty simple.

Step 5: Trace Your Case

Trace the case into your guitar and cut it with the razor.

Step 6: Trace and Cut

Trace and cut another body of the guitar.

Step 7: Glue the Pieces Together

Get some sort of strong glue and put the pieces together. I used hot glue.

Step 8: Done!

Once you have glued the pieces together lets them dry and then you will be ready to rock out. To use this guitar you have to install some sort of music app like garage band so that you can strum the guitar.
