Yesterday Tucker and I began building a single string electric guitar out of PVC pipe as detailed in Make Magazine. We got all the parts and got started yesterday — thanks to Jim of the Music Loft in Carrboro especially for the machine head and the string and good advice. twice.
Today we had it all together and we tuned it up to a D before the string snapped! We were aiming for E. it worked! But we need to have more strings on hand. Monday for strings and to try again.
