Making a guitar

Over the last couple of weeks, there have been guys carving out and making guitars near our village. The second time we noticed they were still there, we went to talk to them.They make not only acoustic guitars, but also guitars that will be electric. They carve it out of wood, paint them red, and attach legitimate guitar strings. The frets are made out of old bicycle spokes. Jon and I really want to see how the electric guitar works! They offered to show Jon how to make one and he wants to take them up on that offer when he finds some more time.
