It's that time of year! We're looking for the wildest Halloween-inspired homemade instruments. Coffin basses, creepy guitars, musical chainsaws, axe guitars, grave digger shovel guitars... get weird or go home!
Need inspiration? Check out our previous Halloween build-off.
Shane & Ben will judge this insane contest. They're looking for originality, general insanity and the willingness to push the envelope. Oh...and the entries must be playable instruments.
NOTE: This is the official entry page. Do not use this thread to comment on other people's submissions.
Get weird and get building! Let's make this the wildest contest ever!
That's freaking beautiful! What wood is the neck made out of?
Spectraply is laminated premium yellow birch veneer. Lots of pen makers/turners use it.
Thank you so much!!!
The wood is called Spectraply and is available from Cousineau Wood Products in Maine. Last time I checked there were about 50 different color combinations and they recently scaled back their minimum order requirements so you can buy just one panel if you like. Panels come in various sizes, but I prefer 0.75 x 9.5 x 40 and I can usually get 5 guitar necks (1.5 inch width) once the edges are trimmed.
