The Exit Sign Guitar + a quickie blues lesson. Built by Gary Desrosiers

Video + photos

Here's a wild guitar concept I haven't seen before.  This three-stringer was crafted from a discarded exit sign by Gary Desrosiers.  According to Desrosiers, he came across the plastic sign at a job site and inspiration struck.  

He generously gave me the guitar as a thank you for the cigar box guitar info I've posted on the internet.  Gary, the pleasure is all mine!

Here's more photos of the guitar in detail.  It plays like buttah!

Shane, does the sign light up when you jack it up? Great lookin' git, either way.

Bahahaha!  Not an image I needed in my head! :-P
