Baseball Bat “Cigar Box Style” Guitar

I just finished my baseball bat guitar prototype over the weekend. I learned a lot from making this one—the next one will be way cooler, with less broken screws and filled holes. Regardless, I’m really happy with the results.

It’s a three-string electric guitar, that holds its tune and is super durable. I left this one fretless, but I may install frets cut from brass rod on the next one.

Just pictures for now; I’ll follow up with some build pictures and perhaps some video down the line.

    • Yeah, depending upon where they are cracked you can probably cut the broken parts away when you rip the bat. The wood is crazy dense; it’s surprising how much pressure half of a bat can take with very material. Let me know if you want to make one; I’ll send production pictures and notes.
