This is my spookiest ukulele. In honor of Halloween I recorded The Munsters theme on it.http://www.cigarboxnation.com/video/the-munsters
The 'Screamin' Demon' CBG slide guitar is finished. Handcrafted 'demon' bridge cover, tail end flames, and hand painted devil blues band dancing in the fire. Can be played acoustically or plugged in has an internal piezo pickup. Everything except the strings, tuners, and pickup made from recycled wood, tin can, deer antlers, drawer handle, dowel rods, and an old cigar box.
My entry into the Halloween build off.
3-string fretless blues box slide guitar. 24.5 scale.(Voodoo). I repurposed an 87 Yr old dresser I acquired from a cousin in new orleans for the box. Disco tone pick-up, medium Blues Blaster strings in GDG, with an oak neck. Black skull tuners and volume control. Red LED interior light and blood red crystals for the neck/fret markers. Resonator springs installed as well. Thank you C.B. Gitty for your support.
Thanks for looking and good luck to all the other entries.
Think you're having a rough day? Meet Henry.....He's a bloody three piece semi-hollow body guitar that's been speared through his head and neck. The eyes not only give a third dimension but also double as the sound holes. Toilet paper and glue give the weathered skin look on the body and bloody fingerprints act as the fret markers. The bottom of the spear with neck is removable. Happy Halloween and thank you for the consideration!
