That must be the wildest attempt at converting a humble 6-string guitar into a mind-boggling 12-string masterpiece. Buckle up, folks, because this DIY adventure is about to take us on a journey of laughter and questionable craftsmanship.

Now, here’s the thing – a classic nylon guitar may not be the ideal starting point for such a conversion. I mean, sure, there are nylon guitars with 10, 11, and 12 strings out there, but let’s just say this DIY enthusiast decided to embrace the challenge head-on. Gotta give them credit for their audacity.

Instead of opting for a sleek and professional-looking modification, they decided to glue a piece of wood onto the headstock to expand it. Oh boy, talk about an eyesore. It’s like they took a perfectly innocent guitar and slapped on a comically oversized hat. It’s functional, sure, but let’s just say aesthetics weren’t their top priority.

Now, get this – despite all the efforts, it’s not even a 12-string guitar they ended up with. Nope, it’s an 11-string. I mean, who needs that extra string anyway, right? It’s like they were going for the full 12 but got tired along the way and said, “Eh, close enough.”

But here’s where things take a hilarious turn. This guitar, originally built for 6 delicate nylon strings, now finds itself burdened with 11 steel strings. What could possibly go wrong? Well, let’s just say the tension game is strong with this one. Will the poor guitar survive? Will it succumb to the pressure? Only time will tell.

Oh, and don’t even get me started on the bridge situation. They decided to screw it into a humble pine stripe to compensate for the extra tension. Pine, folks. It’s like using a toothpick to hold up a skyscraper. I have my doubts about the structural integrity, but hey, at least it adds another layer of comedy to the whole ordeal.

And let’s not forget the innovative approach to string spacing – the trusty screws on the bridge. Who needs precise measurements and setup when you can rely on a handful of screws to do the job?

In the end, we can’t help but appreciate the rustic charm of this DIY monstrosity. It’s a testament to human creativity and the sheer audacity to try something unconventional. Even if it ends up being a hilarious disaster, it’s the journey that counts, right?

And at least, the builder is honest about it “As you can see that it is not a peice of artwork and certainly no Martin, but it works and it sounds good, futher more I didn’t pay much to do it.”

So, grab your popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the show. This tutorial may not result in a perfect 12-string guitar, but it’s guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. Remember, laughter is the best music, even if it’s slightly out of tune.

Stay tuned for more comedic adventures in the world of guitars! Until next time, keep laughing and strumming, my friends. Cheers!
