Fender Stratocaster cardboard guitar flabbergasts Linkin Park on first look
There have been countless number of things crafted out of cardboard and infinite more to come as long as creativity is alive. Another cardboard creation that caught our eye is this guitar by Signal Snowboards inspired from the design of world’s most famous electric guitar, the Fender Stratosphere. Now that is a tall order for the sheer complexity required to create the guitar’s body. Called as Cardboard Chaos, this project came to life courtesy collaboration with Ernest Packaging.
To make it functional, they used actual Fender parts like the strings, frets, pickups and pick guard. Rest of the body is made from corrugated cardboard arranged in many layers to give it structural strength and real feel. The most difficult part is arranging the cardboard in such a way that it gives see-through look. This is achieved by painstakingly arranging the layers of cardboard around the skeletal of this guitar.
This cardboard guitar is good to play and will last a lifetime
Making a fully-functional guitar from cardboard is quite difficult and you can very well imagine the amount of time put into its making. One advantage this DIY guitar has over the real one, it is much lighter than a real Fender Stratosphere electric guitar.
After the cardboard guitar finished completion, the makers took it to Linkin Park’s lead vocalist Chester Bennington who surprised lead guitarist Brad Delson with this amazing creation. Both of them couldn’t believe how cool this functional cardboard guitar turned out to be.
