YouTuber Bernth Brodträger is well-known for his wacky guitar experiments.

To name just a few examples, he's used dental floss and rubber bands as guitar strings, recorded his amp underwater, put sparklers in the soundhole and at both ends of a guitar (and set them off while playing it), drilled dozens of holes into an acoustic guitar... Bottom line is, Bernth isn't afraid to try crazy mods to get interesting new sounds from the guitar.
