I really wasn't suggesting building anything out of Legos, well I did
consider building a guitar out of Erector (the little nuts and bolts building
sets). But now that you mention it, it's not a bad idea. 

I like the idea of using physical motion to create or alter sound. How about
using one or several vibrating string as an LFO to modulate other sounds.
maybe a loose bass string? Has this been done? It would be interesting to
incorporate elements of acoustic instruments with electronic instruments. I
know some degree of this has been done.
