Love this submission to our project from Jeff Conley!
After having two vintage Gibson guitars stolen after a show he decided he would never buy another guitar. Instead he started to build acoustic and electric guitars out of old vintage suitcases! He has even built electric foot drums from the suitcases as well!
This song below is called “For Gibby” for his stolen guitar:

Last week we launched our “Made of Imagination” project with MTV, our biggest collaboration yet! In case you forgot already or didn’t see the original post, we wanna see who can make the most creative homemade instruments on the planet, and we’d love to see videos of you and your friends performing with them!
We’re also asking some emerging Canadian musicians to do the same kinda thing! The video above is the first of four that we’ve produced, and it features rising star Rich Aucoin.
Ready to make your own instruments???

People have been pointing me to some really unique music performances and some amazing homemade instruments like this one by Harm Goslink Cooper spotted over at Craft. Thank you @Nateene for the link! This isn’t a submission to our project but I wish it was! What a beauty!
If you come across any videos or links that will inspire people as they work on their instruments for our “Made of Imagination” project you can tweet it @Booooooom and use #mtvbooooooom hashtag, or leave a comment on our Facebook status.
