These guitars made from recycled carbon-fiber frames of bikes which is kinda cool but don’t try to play beyond the 12th fret ! Don’t even think about it !


Jacob Chapman, from Bend, Oregon, ingeniously turned carbon-fiber frame of a Trek Y bike into a guitar. He calls it the Flying Y and it was not as difficult to build as it might seem. After displaying his first one in the bike shop where he works as a mechanic, he acquired another two from customers and transformed the frames into guitars. Today, his first Flying Y is on display in the lobby of Trek Bicycle’s headquarters in Wisconsin.
