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 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.
