once in a while, you get a really far out hack and this one, about ranks up there. not your regular diy but when pj doland tipped me on it, i was impressed. zachary of zachary guitars builds guitars out of ikea table tops!
he writes, "this is one of the most interesting guitars i ever built and it is also one of the best. this amazingly figured top is from ikea furnishings. i bought one of their unfinished end tables for $15 and i can get three guitar tops from it. what a shame that they would use such amazing 'tone-wood' for their cheap furniture. it's a sacrilege." link.
