(Before It's News)

Guitars, Violins, Ukuleles and Cellos are wonderful stringed instruments that each part can be reused into everyday items. Just for a lark, I went to find out how many stringed intrusments there are over 200 different types of stringed instruments between struck, tapped, keyboard, bowe, hurly gurly, air movement (harp) and pianos.(Wikipedia) With all those instruments in the world, how many get broken? This is aside from musicians making a statement, with Matthew Bellamy of Muse who has the Guinness world record at breaking the most guitars in one tour, at 140 guitars.  (Wikipedia)
