Man Builds Functional Electric Guitar Out Of LEGO Bricks

September 29, 2015

This is the LEGO electric guitar built by guitar maker Nicola Pavan (who traditionally works with wood). The body is entirely LEGO except for the bridge and electronics, but the neck is a regular guitar neck. Pavan added some glue and screws in order to hold everything together, because there's nothing worse than your guitar breaking into a million pieces in the middle of a solo. That is not how you get groupies. Not good groupies anyways. I might still ask you to sign my tits, but I'll ask just about anybody to sign my tits.

Keep going for a video of Nicola playing the thing.

Thanks to Victor AMS, who tried building a guitar out of Lincoln Logs but the Big Bad Wolf destroyed the shit out of it because he's a jerk and a terrible tour manager.

    being able to play is not a prerequisite to building a guitar.

    Okay, so he built the "whole guitar" except basically everything but the body out of bricks that he had to glue in order for it to stay in shape?
    I'd call fail, but even that is probably too much attention already.

    Much like Leo Fender, he builds guitars that he can't play.

    many erhu players in china are autodidactic and blind.
    does that mean they arent erhu players?
    does that mean they can't play?

    do they have to meet some threshold on your arbitrary metric for having the ability to play or not?

  • Big McLargehuge

    Yes

    I can't play guitar but I'm sure I could build one. I mean, especially an electric guitar where you just need pickups and strings. It doesn't really have to resonate the way acoustics have to.

    Pfft.. I made one out of duct tape when I was 17.

    It actually sounded pretty decent for a wad of tape.

    its a youtube video. not a nobel prize.
