Deadline: New Years Day 2014
* * VOTE HERE **
Voting Deadline Midnight 1/21/14
The theme of this challenge is to incorporate something you'd find in your garage into your build - any type of instrument. Some ideas are:
Basically anything you'd find in your garage!
Even one small piece qualifies...
No Garage? Check your car trunk or shed or hall closet. There's a millionteen items you can use...
Start a new discussion here and post progress of your build - or wait until the end and surprise us. After the deadline I'll start a new discussion for voting where I'll post each entry and provide a poll for voting.
Below where it says Forum Discussions, click Add a Discussion and keep your pics & comments all together.
Enter as many instruments as you want, but please post a new discussion for each.
Prizes will be determined at a later date . Any ideas or donations?
I'll sweeten the pot with complete Crocker electronics - a DownUnder pickup and a wiring harness with volume/tone, jack and a control plate & knobs.
If you have questions, comments or suggestions, please post in the Comment Wall below.
ARE YOU IN?
We have a little over 9 weeks, let's get started!
Good Luck & Have Fun!
