anybody is welcome to try this challenge and we encourage you to participate, if not for any other reason except to see what you are capable of. there is no set style of guitar in this challenge, it could have as many strings as you want it to.as long as it has a string that vibrates and you can play a tune on it, it qualifies for this build. every body have a fun time. you should have plenty time to get your build completed. we are looking for most unusual if you can build it. but 1st place and 2nd place will be decided by the members.if we can do it we should put pictures or videos of each individual participants build on a page in itself for the challengers to enjoy. thanks everybody.

Hey Brian/Steve what is the actual submittal deadline date?

Oh one more thing. Thanks for doing this in here (CBN) I am still a lil challenged getting comfortable with the Yahoo bulders group.
ted they make cigarboxes out of metal and plastic i think one of those would qualify as long as the box is not wood, that is bonehead,s request,(no wood) in the guitar build.

Cool Guys let the games begin - no wood should make it very intresting - i have been thinking of a unusual build for a while now and guess what ???....it's not wood.. OOOOOhhhh this is gonna be like a walk in the Park hahahahahahahahah!!
One Question ?? - are you prepared to ship your Guitar to the UK Bonehead ??? lol!!
Later Guys i have materials to Collect
juju.
ok guys im in ,,,,well ill try,,lol
randy i think you could use antler,yep especially elk i am curious to see how that would turn out. have fun my friend and be a creative thinker like i know you can, cause i have seen your work. this contest is about most unusual design but it is also about having fun and being outside the wooden box. the members of this group will decide who has the no.1 build and the no.2 build and both no.1 and no. 2 will get a cool guitar for their efforts in creative design.

Can I use an Elk antler ? got a long piece laying around here
TINQU18, i can,t wait to see what you come up with, i think you will be very creative in your efforts.have a good time my friend.dont forget you have to vote on the two best builds,the members of this group decides who will get the guitars that bonehead and the bairfoot cajun will give away. lesser les bon temps rouller.

the subject came up in the chat room tonight about using bamboo,the challenger made the call and said he is ok with using bamboo. if any body wants to know.
not sure of all the challengers yet tinqu18 but as soon as i find out i will keep you informed ok my friend.
Brian, count me in, have many ideas, just hope i can get them done before work sends me to Alabama.
ok Delvero you are on the list if you dont get to finish you project we will continue to have challenges of this kind to keep life here in the unusual guitar design group a fun place to hang out so the next challenge might be more appealing to ya.this is just the beginning, i would like to have a new challenge every other month if possible but we will see how that goes.maybe it will be one every three months.instead of 6 per year it would be 4 per year.always with some kind of cool award to the winner.so let us have a good time,and we are looking forward to see your results and all the others that will eventually enter.maybe the next challenge will be one with wood and wood only we will see.
