Want to make an electric guitar from junk? Ranjit will teach you. There are still some spots left in his Electric Junk Guitar class Etsy labs in Brooklyn on The 30th (Wednesday). Sign up here!

The electric guitar is a sophisticated and highly evolved instrument. But, you can make your own out of a few bucks worth of junk and parts. Learn to wind your own guitar pickups and build them into a simple one- or two-string junk guitar with a surprisingly nice sound. Depending on your ambition and experience, you can make your junk guitar as simple or as sophisticated as you want, but everybody is guaranteed to go home with at least a fun twangy noisemaker.
