Nowadays, ammo boxes are usually seen in museums or in hipster antique shops, but Tate Chmielewski decides to do something different by making it into a guitar.

Chmielewski has a creative talent to modify random items into musical instruments that not only have the look, but also the sound. It's interesting to see empty boxes turn into amazing instruments, like his previous creation of a metal lunch box ukulele.

This handcrafted ammo box guitar is equipped with four strings that shoot top notch sounds. Tate Chmielewski sells his crossbreed instruments on his Etsy website Stera Instruments. The guitar puts out tunes similarly to a real electric guitar, but the shape is different; although the appearance is a one-of-a-kind, it sure isn't the most comfortable to play with. For those with a love of antiques and music, this electric ammo box guitar is the ideal instrument to jam with. Stats for Electric Ammo Box Guitars Trending: Older & Chilly
