Swamp witch guitars “ Arsenal”
Guitar body is an actual CIL explosives case . (I HELPED GIVE IT A MORE AGED LOOK WITH A STAIN BURST .. AND SOME CARPET TACS AND STAPLES . THEN AGED THE TAC HOLES AND STAPLES BY BLEEDING A FINE POINT SHARPIE AROUND THE HOLE EDGES ETC …)
AMP WAS ACTUALLY A WINE BOX , BUT I OWN A WINCHESTER CRATE STENCIL , SO I USED IT TO MATCH THE THEME .. I SEEM TO HAVE A KNACK ON COLOR MATCHING, AND IT MATCHES AND FITS THE GUITAR LOOK WELL .
FRET MARKERS ARE SPENT SHELL CASINGS (STARTER PISTOL)
“FIRE IN THE HOLE / CONTACT WING-NUTS . SIMULATE VOLUME / TONE CONTROLS.
MOJO , COOLNESS , AND BIG BANG FOR THE BUCK.
COULDA BEEN YOURS . :-(
