Build an electric guitar with parts from Ikea | Digital Trends Spanish

A Belgian user uploaded to his Youtube channel, Tchicks Guitarsthe construction of an electric guitar only from furniture pieces of Ikea.

“This idea came to me while I was making a replica of Brian May’s Red Special,” says the creator.

I made GUITAR out of IKEA furniture, how does it sound?

“The guitar started as a joke. I remember going upstairs and saying to my wife, “I’m going to make a guitar out of Zoe’s old bed.” She rolled her eyes at the ceiling and asked “why.” So I immediately thought, “This is the way.” She now she could have done everything differently,” she added.

Some products he used: bamboo for the mast to paper fiberfill in the form of honeycomb. The final touch is a drawer knob and an Allen key on the neck.

Here are the specifications:

Neck: STUVA cradle Body: HENRIKSDAL saddle, LACK shelf Fingerboard: MÅLERÅS picture ledge Knobs: APTILIG chopping board Jack output plate: LILANGEN door handle Strap buttons: KALLAX insert knob 24 frets – Lace Alumitone pickup – Split coil push/push (turns on a LED when activated).
