Ernest Fender Cardboard Guitar

Ernest Fender Cardboard Guitar

To build a legendary Fender Stratocaster electric guitar out of cardboard, Ernest had to match the strength of lumber, make it playable, and duplicate the iconic Strat sound. Learn how we engineered a rock solid cardboard core that does it all.


The Ernest team loves to see how far they can push the limits of what paper can do for their clients. From snowboards to surfboards to bikes, the innovation has been impressive.
