    dean-fraser-matchstick-stratocaster-1.jpg dean-fraser-matchstick-stratocaster-21.jpg Pencils are made of cedar, which is a tonewood. It's kinda soft for a solidbody, but it's the most common wood for acoustic tops after spruce. There's also this one made from matchsticks- body, neck, fretboard, and even the pickguard, knobs, pickup covers and jackplate are made from matches.

    I've seen guitars made out of Legos too. Guess they glued them them together otherwise I don't see how they would stay together.
    The colored pencil body is cool but seems like a whole lot of work. At least he knew how to do it. And it is unique.

    So that's basically a slab of very weak end grain, probably a good fist pound could crack it in half along the pencil grain. But otherwise really cool.

    I like it. A heck of a lot of work, though.

    If you rub it, it turns into a bass.

    I just have one question?

    Were those pencils responsibly sourced?
