Luthiery meets taxidermy: the ever-so creepy Zulu War Lord "dead deer and steer" electric guitar

Mark Rubel saw this rather creepy looking guitar listed on Craigslist in Nashville, where the seller describes it thus:
Classic "Strat Style" Warmoth Body with Compound Radius Neck ~ 1980's Dimarzio pick-ups ~ Just enuf fur, deerskin, and eyeballs for those primal screamistic tones ~ All kidding aside, this guitar sounds and plays really well ~ I purchased it in 1988 in it's "raw" form and decided it needed some "showbiz flair"... call me crazy but I definitely had fun adding the real deerskin and eyeballs from my local taxidermist and the signature steerhorns, which by the way can be removed to fit in any standard soft or hard case. Kahler wammy bar and locking nut system ~ Headstock is left blank so you can "brand in" your name of choice.
$425 offers considered, or possible trades for vintage pygmy blow dart gun ~

Just for once I think I'd prefer the dreaded dice or skull control knobs!

  1. Oh dear lord, I hadn't even noticed the eyes...

  2. Call me old-fashioned, but I would prefer to see that 'real deer skin' on a real deer...

  3. I let the cheetah covered go because it was fake cheetah but this is enough. Guitarz has done animal hide guitars. Move on. Don't go back.

    1. I'm not condoning it, I think it is absolutely vile.
