This Guy’s Frying Pan Guitar Will Blow Your Mind

This frying pan guitar is one of the most unique instruments we’ve ever seen.

Terry “Mojo” Johnson of the Swamp Drivers made the fully-functioning electric guitar out of a large frying pan, a metal kitchen platter and some other odds and ends.

“I started with a frying pan that I got beside the road, and a few other parts, and I put this together.”

Here’s a look at the platter attached to the back.

“This is the hardest build I ever made, because I probably drilled 20 drill bits on this thing,” Johnson said. 

The guitar parts are for a Stratocaster. Johnson glued pennies onto the tone knobs.

But what you really want to know is how this frying pan guitar sounds. Check it out in the video below.

This isn’t Johnson’s first odds-and-ends guitar. His other projects include a string swamp bass, a string broom, a string garden hoe, a string plunger, a hubcap guitar and more.
