The Upcycled Guitar


I love music, and I love guitars. 
Now of course, I am going to share with you some creative things made from
 upcycled guitars and guitar cases, as well as some guitar-inspired art!
I hope you enjoy!

  1. Very cool! I love Dolangeiman's pieces. I took guitar classes in 4-5 grades but alas can only strum along to a very bad Red River Valley and I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing! Unplugged of course..

  2. All beautiful - fav is the Dolangeiman cut out. I do them in recycled steel along with many other crazy things. Love anything to do with recycling/upcycling. Glad I found you.

    2. Thanks Laura - glad you enjoy my work. What I create is what I'm happy to surround myself with if I never sell another piece. A labor of love. I have a website with a few more pics. www.soozequedesigns.shutterfly.com
      Someday I'll get a real site, if I can put my welder down! Thanks for joining me. Susie

  5. Guitar cases I wouldn't have a problem with, but if anyone wants to renovate a guitar I would recommend checking out the maker (Martin, Fender, Gibson etc...)before turning it into a piece of art. Some of these guitars, even in poor shape, can fetch a pretty penny. I've seen Martin guitars go for thousands.

    1. Yeah, I'm sure these are all created from old damaged ones. Martin guitar is close to my home :)

  7. Guitars are pretty on their own, but, wow, I love the mosaic one! Can't wait to look at some of the shops you featured.

  8. Nice! I did a little repurposed guitar round up back in July ... and I'm impressed that there's almost no repetition here. Who knew you could do so many things with an old guitar!

  12. Hubby is locking up our guitars right now so that I don't try to turn them into something else. I love the case turned table

  13. What creative ideas! I love the first one and I've always wanted to engrave a guitar. But there are so many clever designs here!
