i guess ill start this off with my dead ringer .
“dead ringer “ special Halloween edition swamp witch guitar .
The term “DEAD RINGER” :-is “ often” related to an old English fear of being buried alive. Cemeteries started tying a string around the wrist of the corpse & attached it to a bell . If the bell rang, the graveyard employees had to dig em up . They even employed someone to stay there all night and listen for bells (thus the phrase 'graveyard shift'). And saved by the bell .
Tis also said to mean someone that is an exact duplicate of someone that has passed .. as if come back to life .
A special one of a kind Halloween themed 3 stringer slide cigar box style swamp witch guitar .
Eyes are vintage flash cards from cracker jack box prizes . they change from open to closed depending on angle of view .

Presenting my "FRANKEN-LELE," made from dead lunchbox and ukulele parts, just like Frankenstein, himself. This Lunchbox-A-Lele has been displayed in numerous art gallery and museum exhibits and is featured in my "Monster Mash" music video, as well as my YouTube video encouraging people to build their own creations and play'em!
Nice clean creepy build !!!
It seems there is already some stiff competition... or for this contest, is it more appropriate to say the competition are a bunch of stiffs?
At any rate, I just finished this 2-String, Electric Chugger just last week. I saw this posting only yesterday, and thought it's cool how that worked out.
I have had this box for a while, and from the first time I saw it, I knew I wanted to do something "Vampire-inspired". With the font chosen for the title of the box ("The Culture"), the dark, almost purple mahogany color of the box, and the ornate silver hinges... what else could I have made?
I am not sure what else I could have done better with this build, other than finding an old key to use for the bridge and something better for the nut. I still may do that if I happen to luck out with finding something. Overall she, sounds great (will post a video to YouTube over the next week or so).
