Nutty as a Coconut (Amp)

by The Scholar

If you’ve ever seen the movie Castaway you know that Chuck Noland, the character Tom Hanks played, existed on coconut meat for quite some time before getting back to civilization. When I look at this cool amp with coconut shell cover created by Steve Lodefink it makes me wonder what parts of the movie they edited out.

Did Chuck have any rhythm? Did he make percussion instruments out of the other coconuts? Do you think the first Guitar Hero game might have been created on Gilligan’s Island? Perhaps they made instruments out of palm fronds and rope from the boat to put on a show! Discuss amongst yourselves… and see more fun photos of Steve’s tinkering over on his Flickr stream.

    That’s not an amp! You’ve just got to halves of coconut and you’re banging them together!

    i believe the unit is plugged in and the power is turned on… the red light is shining bright! AND it has a little round speaker grill — doesn’t that make it an amp? :)

    i think scooby doo really knew how to ROCK. he probably plugged that coconut into a 80’s style dog biscuit guitar. :)
