We're used to guitars arriving in cardboard boxes, but could you imagine if one was actually made of the stuff?

Cue, oddly enough, Signal Snowboards and LA-based Ernest Packaging – in the past, the team have made cardboard skateboards and surfboards, but for this challenge, they set out to build a cardboard Stratocaster, with the help of Fender Custom Shop master builder Paul Waller.

Once the cardboard body and neck have been constructed, the guitar is cut out and tested by a number of dumbfounded Fender employees before being delivered to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington and Brad Delson, who put the Cardboardcaster through its paces.

It all begs the question: what's next? Corrugated Charvels? Tetrapak Telecasters? Answers on a postcard, please.
