So, I stumbled upon this guitar the other day and I have to say, it’s a real piece of work. And by “work”, I mean, it looks like someone didn’t even care to work the wood.
I mean, it’s like someone just picked up a fallen tree and thought, “Hey, this would make a great guitar body!”. Then, they started the project and just gave up halfway through. I’m pretty sure there’s a squirrel still living in the bottom of it.
But hey, maybe this is the future of guitar building. Who needs a well-crafted, carefully designed instrument when you can just pick up a fallen tree and start playing? I can see it now, the next big thing in music: the forest jam session.
And if you thought the look of it was bad, just wait until you hear the sound. I’m pretty sure this thing has the same tonal qualities as a log. I wish I could see the look on the audience’s faces when this thing is brought out on stage.
I’m not sure what the builder was going for with this guitar, but I have a feeling they were going for the rustic, back-to-nature look. Well, they definitely achieved that. It’s like a caveman’s dream guitar.
This tree trunk guitar might just be the thing for someone looking for a conversation starter or a way to scare off their neighbors.
