This is wild. When cameras try to capture guitar strings being played, they see wavelength-type movements from each string because of the camera's rolling shutter effect.

Video: I don't know what I'm most impressed with in this video of a guitar being made by hand: Eitan's Bartel absolute love for the instrument he makes, the perfect measurements needed to craft one of his guitars, the unbelievable skill and precision required in each step, the shots of woodworking, the imagination of smell.
