Burls Art – the man behind guitars made of 50lbs of pink Himalayan salt, 800 sheets of paper and 5,000 coffee beans – has built yet another astonishing instrument – this time, a bass guitar made of 2,000 Lego bricks.

The YouTuber started the build by constructing the bass's body using green-, cream-, yellow- and white-colored bricks arranged in a geometric pattern – using glue to hold the bricks in place for added stability. A piece of maple wood was glued to the middle of the body using epoxy resin for extra strength.
