Artist Sculpts A Unique Electric Guitar Body From 1,200 Colored Pencils

Colored pencils can do more than drawing; they can also be art themselves! From hand-carved sculptures to perfectly patterned jewelry, we have seen many talented makers turn the art box staple into stunning creations. Inspired by this unique art form, an artist known as Flyjumper on Reddit (or Burls Art on YouTube) has recently built his own custom electric guitar, using 1,200 colored pencils for the body.


He started by cutting 1,200 colored pencils into two parts using a saw. After sanding the entire rectangular slab, Flyjumper started to trace out the shape of the guitar body. Then he carefully carved and sanded out the curved contours to uncover its final form.

After covering the body with multiple coats of shiny polish, Flyjumper then started to install the instrument’s mechanical hardware, like the tremolo, the neck, internal wiring, and finally the strings. The result is a fully functioning, honeycomb-patterned electric guitar which looks like a work of art!
