Custom Bass Guitar from hell... or the farm

Here's an idea I came up with for a custom bass guitar, made in the image of a classic shovel.  The body is still crafted from hardwood but painted with a metallic finish to simulate metal.  Using shades of gray on the face gives the illusion of being curved like a spoon shovel.  In addition, it is tastefully decorated with a lovely sinister skull and his bony hand which seems to be strumming that ol' deep, dark devil music.  I call this bass the "Gravedigger".
In case you're wondering, yes, I am serious... 

As Frazetta would say, why the hell not?
Yes, it will bury the competition, and people will dig it, and there are probably a thousand other puns that'll accompany such an odd-looking guitar. But that's the point, isn't it? Gaining attention any way you can is exactly what a band needs and it's what a bass player should want. Standing out from the crowd is essential, and I guarantee that if it's made with craftsmanship, this is the type of thing photographers will shoot while you're playing on stage, the type of thing that will get mentioned in magazines, the type of thing that gets talked about, simply because it is unique and unusual.  Not only that, it's easy to carry, easy to hang on the wall of your garage, and easy to swing at the drummer's head.

Stay tuned for upcoming pics of the Pogo stick bass guitar.  :-)

  3. This is only a picture made on the computer. Why don't you take a peace of wood and try to make the bass from cemetary or farm?
