Electric guitars made from old oil cans

Bohemian Guitars turns empty cans of paint thinner and motor oil into handsome electric geetars. You can hear their sound here. The guitars start at $230 and with every guitar sold, Bohemian donates one instrument to a non-profit for children in need. Bohemian Guitars (Thanks, Gabe Adiv!)


  1. A neighbor of mine has family in Morocco. At one point in time, one of their relatives was in school and had an orchestra class. The only problem was that they couldn’t afford a violin for her, so they built one out of an old oil can. Eventually, my neighbor’s granddaughter bought her a violin. I always think about how backwards the cigar box trend is when I remember that.

  2. Where you strum these guitar is actually very important to the sound you want to achieve through guitar scales. There’s certain places on the guitar that have a warmer, bassier sound… and others that have a brighter sound….my personal opinion though…
