    OK the kids have to make a musical instrument then learn the basiciks of playing it.
    I was going to give him a wash board and two thimbles.
    Standing listning to trumpets frome garden hose drum sets from oil cans simbils from pot lids harps
    Not a mention of guitars of any kind
    We will make a guitar only thing is finding a cigar box I have a nice bit of hard wood for the neck and a old guitar for the string tenchoners
    If word comes to worst I will just make a box out of thin plywood

    Billy Mate! the lad can pick up a Gat from the likes of LIDL and ALDI for 30 quid or so.
    Failing that there is an Aussie Fella that performs with an home made gat, should be easy to find on Google to get a pattern.

    The shop The Works have cigar box guitar kits in for (I think) £30. Don't know if that's cheating but you'll have all the bits you need.

    Just a thought why not use something like a spade to make a guitar, maybe a kids one?
