Assembled by guitar builder Dean Fraser, the Strat-style instrument features 40,000 matchsticks and was assembled over 18 years.
Most impressively, everything that can be made of matchsticks actually is - that’s the body, neck, pickguard, pickup covers, jack socket, trem cover, switch tip, trem tip and knobs.
It's also completely playable, and "sounds as good as any high-end guitar should do", according to Fraser.
The matchsticks were sourced from 24-hour ration packs and Fraser’s time serving in the British Armed forces as an infantryman, the builder said in a Facebook post.
