Most guitars come from trees. YouTube guitar fiend Rob Scallon’s newest guitar, however, comes from Dollar Tree.
Above, check out Scallon’s latest video, in which he truly “rocks out on a budget”—using, of course, his awesome new $1 guitar.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about the clip is the very satisfying backing track Scallon created—drums and all—to go with his “nightmare” $1-guitar performance.
“It is a nightmare to tune and a nightmare to play,” says Scallon in the making-of video below. “It’s two pieces of plastic, one piece on bottom and one for the top—and I guess four pieces for the tuners. And then four strings, and the strings are all the same gauge, as you would imagine.
“I tuned the top string to an F# and brought the next one down a step to E, and then the one below that is an octave lower than F#.”
