Let’s Build an Electric Guitar

Fun with electricity.

Do you know how electric guitars are built? I fuckin’ don’t and I’ve played guitar most of my life. You’ve got the wooden bit, the string-y bit, sometimes a widdly-widdly bit, and then you plug it in and attach it to an asshole. Voilá. Electric guitar. Pretty sure, anyway. Thankfully, the bro in this video got his hands dirty and built his own electric guitar with roughly the same amount of luthier knowledge I possess. Marvel as he crafts this one-of-a-kind instrument with his own two charred hands.

To be totally honest, I very rarely watch internet videos that don’t involve an animal doing something adorable but this one is 10/10 A+++++ WDBWA. It’s an open swim. Get to swimmin’.

        Well, I do like Live in Leipzig, De Mysteriis, and Wolf’s Lair Abyss. But after that, it’s a little meh.

        • I can dig that. I mainly just meant Deathcrush is far superior to anything else they’ve done in my opinion.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            The title cut to De Mysreriis is their pinnacle to me.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Deathcrush is ungood. DMDS isn’t that marvelous either.

          • Are you going for the world record for amount of times wrong in one day?

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Tapir isn’t here. Someone has to.
            Also,Dead kinda sucks (the vox man Dead, I prefer Attila by far) and Mayhem, having never been really good, made their best efforts recently.

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Hey, stop stealing my opinions!

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Be here on time, sis.

          • The Bestest Tapir

            It has been a busy day, sis.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            I haf noticed so. Your absence has been felt by all.

          • The Bestest Tapir

            I don’t like that disqus has changed. It’s weird.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Changed? I guess there’s something new-iah on the D main page, but nothing that has changed the usage of it in the Terlet

          • The Bestest Tapir

            It has changed for me (at least on mobile). It’s very different.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Iontkno *shrugs*

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Noticed no change on mobile, all day long

          • The Bestest Tapir

            I swear it’s different for me than it used to be.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            How?

          • The Bestest Tapir

            The size of comments is larger, I can’t see who has liked a comment.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            I couldn’t do that before.

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Then it has updated for me later? I used to be able to see that yesterday.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            I’ve never seen who’s updated, on mobile

          • The Bestest Tapir

            ..

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Upvoted I meant to say

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Ya dun goofed!
            Oh how I hope that Amazon and DHL will not betray me.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            What ya get?

          • The Bestest Tapir

            I bought Coil’s Love’s Secret Domain. I paid quite a lot and it is guaranteed to arrive on this Friday.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Don’t much use Amazon me’self. ‘Cause expenses

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Me neither, but you can’t get Coil albums from Levykauppa Äx (except for one live vinyl). This was the second time I’ve ordered from there.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            Ever tried sending äx mail? They might get you the record and it might be cheaper

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Doubt it. You can pretty much only get them from third party sellers. One can buy The Remote Viewer (one of my favourite of theirs) from Thershold House for not too much.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            What did I tell you? Isn’t it bad?

          • The Bestest Tapir

            *crying in the corner* make the sounds stop!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            You can turn it off. I actually hate that album of theirs. I only like their acoustic album.

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Don’t worry about that, I already own it (got it back when I was Death). I told you not to say you like bad bands.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            But all the bands I like are good though! Especially Spooky Tooth!

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Some bad bands you like: Mushroomhead, Journey, Manilla Road, Asia, Journey, Spooky Tooth, Styx, Duran Duran etc.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            They’re all so good though! You can’t despise Manilla Road!

          • The Bestest Tapir

            You underestimate my hate.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            You also put Journey twice! You could have put some other band there!

          • The Bestest Tapir

            Journey is just so fucking bad.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            You could have put Gary Wright or The Firm. Hell, you could have put Trapt!

          • The Bestest Tapir

            I don’t think I’ve heard a single Trapt song, so I can’t place it on there.

          • KJM

            Poopt.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Not you too! Am I the only “defender” of Trapt here?

          • The Bestest Tapir

            How can you like something that bad?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I can only defend their acoustic album from last year. Besides that any of their stuff is an open target for me.

          • KJM

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Damnit. At least I’m not the only lover of WCW here.

          • KJM

            I only care about it pre-NWO.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I prefer NWO and onward. I also loved Sid Vicious in WCW.

          • KJM

            I was watching when he broke his leg going off the top rope, ghastly.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            It’s so disgusting to watch that footage.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Why isn’t Manfred Mann’s Earth Band on the list? Don’t you hate their covers of pop songs?

        • Guacamole Jim

          Naw, I’m a lifelover to the core. I’d rather just press pause and then listen to literally anything else.

    Speaking of building guitars, ever tried a cigar-box guitar? They are marvelous in all forms.

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            You ever see the movie Slugs? Instead of dumping a load of salt down the sewer they use like, the stupidest method concievable. It’s funny.

    • EsusMoose

      reminds me of the manga Uzamaki, had some slugs in it that were weird

      • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

        I gotta read that some time, loved the film.

  • CT-12

    I’ve made 2 cigarbox guitars, both with underwhelming results. I might try again when I actually have the time and nothing to do, but I’m already getting pissed thinking about it. Definitely a “trial and error” process.

    • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

      How many strings had you? How did you make the neck?

      • CT-12

        4 strings on both. Can’t really remember much about the first one, but the second one was just with some wood I got at a Home Depot.

        • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

          Ah, I’ve made couple myself. The first one was literally a big cigarblx, broomstick and rope(of sorts), played surprisingly well.

          • CT-12

            Yeah, I guess I set my standards a little too high. My fault in the end because I should have just used wire or actual guitar strings instead of the string recommended. I don’t know how some people pull off some of those man; I’d really like to make an electric if I ever figure out the process.

          • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

            For me I guess part of the charm was their absolute crudeness. Altthough I’ve seen some really good too.
            An electric one does sound neat

    • CyberneticOrganism

      I’m going to make a bass table eventually; a solid wooden table with 4 strings strung down one side, a pickup set underneath them and tuning pegs mounted (somehow). More of a conversation piece than anything, but when I eventually put it in my basement bar that I’ll eventually have it’ll be cool to pluck away at the table and hear it resonate.

  • BLVKKBEVRD

    I’ve been playing, as we most know, for some time. What you might not know is that I’ve been repairing/intonating/semi-building guitars for the entirety of my career.

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      Have you ever made a guitar out of a human spine?

      • BLVKKBEVRD

        *a brunette’s or redhead’s. yes.

        • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

          Groovy!

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            The woods really resonant with a redhead’s spine, but the frets dont set so well in the brunette’s spine.

  • Tyree
  • As my open swim topic, I guess I’ll vent. I’ve been really fucking stressed this whole week. I’m trying to get an apartment and a job in time for the fall semester. In addition, I’m trying to keep my grades at an A while also trying to fill all of the checklist requirements for the college such as orientation, touring, placement tests, and immunization records. All of this compounded is fucking financially wrecking me. Every little fucking process has some kind of fee. It is to the point where if something doesn’t start happening soon, I’m going to say fuck the fall semester and get everything sorted out by the spring semester of 2016.

          • GL: providing excellent advice alongside excellent riffs!

          • This I know. I’ve done the research to know that it is always better to have a degree when applying for any job. Even if you don’t get the pristine job right out of college, you’re more likely to be hired and earn more money if you have the degree in the field you want to work in.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I agree with you wholeheartedly. I may not currently be in college but it is a worthwhile investment.

          • I keep procrastinating on in and can’t do much for now, but hoping I can start computer networking classes by the time spring rolls around. Hopefully financial aid shouldn’t be much of a hassle.

          • Wow, you sound like one of those inspirational posters in a 1st grade classroom!

        • i had a ton of fun in college, but man some of those classes… (Electrical Engineering major) i hope you meet some great people there, some of my best friends aren’t from high school but college.

          • I would say that my experience with community college has been hit or miss. I’ve liked a lot of my teachers in religion, English, and history but I’ve been fucked with the science teachers. I do have the benefit of going to the same community college (and soon full university) with my high school best friend so I’m not going to be isolated. I love learning. I just wish that I didn’t have to deal with the bullshit minutia involved in trying to get everything set up.

          • Howard Dean

            Math/science teachers are notoriously impersonal, obtuse, and difficult to work with/difficult to understand. Not all, but many. It’s part of their personality.

  • my Open Swim consists of two questions for y’all:
    1) i started The Affair starring Dominic West. two eps in, is it worth it?
    B) i downloaded John Wick. dis movie >>>>>>> ?

    • Nordling Rites ov Kahlua

      Anything with Dom is worth it. Even Johnny English. Haven’t seen John Wick, mean to.

      • i saw the first Johnny English and let me say this about Sir Natalie Imbruglia, “MARRY ME NOW”. cheezus, so hawt. AND a great voice! i’d listen to her musical stylings any day of the week.. /McNultySometimesAintMetal

    I despise this band but this cover isn’t half. It doesn’t come close to the original but at least it sounds like both Zeppelin and Fuel.

    • JWG
    • fvck this band and fvck Lead Zeppelin.
      (Fuel’s first album Sunburn ain’t bad…)

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        You don’t like Led Zeppelin? Why Jimmy? Why?

        • they had three good songs. THREE.
          cause they’re pure garbage! i guess they were good for their time and/or space but it doesn’t withstand “the test”.
          my impersonation of lead zeppelin “let’s take one OKAY riff and repeat it 20,000 times for one song… no, no changes. i’ll just keep playing THAT riff”. some of the solos feel like the guitarer just threw together 300 notes in a cocaine-infused dream.
          TL;DR: fvck ’em. i add Lead Zeppelin to a list of about 10 “overrated” bands of all time.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Does this mean you hate Spooky Tooth as well?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            You’ve probably heard the song before.

          • negative. this doesn’t sound like ELO (but i trust your opinion).
            my recommendaysh: smoke a big fatty and listen to ELO’s “On the Third Day” or “Time” (which i already know you enjoy)…
            edit: ON VINYL

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I have Time on vinyl but I haven’t found a copy of On The Third Day on vinyl though. I’ll give it a try at some point.

          • Time is a masterpiece but On The Third Day is better…and it marks Jeff Lynns only known usage of the word “fuck”!

            Cocaine music is so good though! Look at the album The Dream Weaver by Gary Wright or any Rick James album!

          • if it’s the same “Deram Weaver” from the first Wayne’s World soundtrack, well all i can say is that song is pure #trill #rocket. Rick James kicks fvckin’ ass, RIP a true legend…

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Yes, it is the same Dream Weaver. On the subject of cocaine music look at this car I found. It seems perfect to listen to cocaine music such as the album I mentioned as well as Nazareth!

            So true.
