But this may be the weirdest build yet – at the very least, it’s certainly the most metal.
Tim Sway, who fashions all types of items out of reclaimed materials, has posted a YouTube video in which he crafts a guitar from the nails he’s pulled from the reclaimed pallets and boards used in other builds.
Watch as he pounds nail after nail into the wood body – using a hammer also made of nails.
Then, to make the whole thing even more metal, Sway takes a blowtorch to the nails to melt them down.
As can be seen in the demo at the end of the video, the guitar not only works, but actually has a pretty good tone. But be careful – during some intense picking, Sway’s demo man, Kenny Bullard from the band Xenosis, gets his hand stuck on a nail near the volume knob.
If this sounds like your type of thing, Sway has the guitar – slyly named the Tetanuscaster – for sale for $1,995 at New Perspectives Music.
As it says in the description: “Yes, you may get hurt playing this, but it is so worth it.”
