Silverware Silver Tone Box Guitar

Two broken guitars mashed together to make one functional guitar.
Silver Tone Silverware Box Guitar Reimagining of two broken guitars, one acoustic and one electric, and one old antique silverware box.

Side story When a family heirloom came to me I was at first unsure what to make with it. The Silverware Box is surely an antique and may well be 95 years old or more. I finely decided to try my hand at another musical instrument. This way I might conjure up some old ancestral sounds from history. I utilized the antique heirloom as the main body of the instrument and really enjoyed the tone and sound it would make, thus the title: Silverware Silver Tone Box Guitar. Currently it is the most recent sound instrument I have made.
