FIVE COOL THINGS - Bobby Hansson's Tin Can Instruments

TODAY'S FIVE COOL THINGS IS A LOOK into a book that has influenced my guitar building for decades.  Originally published in 1996, The Fine Art of the Tin Can is a wonderful coffee table book about tin can sculpture, art and a few instruments. by the late artist, Bobby Hansson.  It was recommended to me in the late 90's.  

There are only a few pages of instruments in there, but being that this book hit the shelves years before the cigar box guitar movement took off, it gave me ideas I couldn't find anywhere else.

Here's a quick and dirty look at some of Hansson's instruments.
