DIY Guitar Building a la Jack White in 'It Might Get Loud'

So the movie It Might Get Loud is now out in Chicago and Boston and in more theatres in NY and CA. Perhaps a few more of you have seen it. Those that have (or have seen the trailer) will remember a part at the opening when Jack White is tinkering around with a 2X4, some nails and a coke bottle. He builds a makeshift guitar and asks, "Who says you need to buy a guitar?"

Well, today the Laura Vierna and Rick Tuma at the Chicago Tribune featured a follow up guide to Do-It-Yourself guitar building much like that which was created by White in the movie.

Looks like a fun little arts and crafts project. Follow the pictorial directions at the Trib website to try it. Let us know what you create.

Oh, and go see the movie if you haven't already. Good flick.
