Instead of burying his uncle when he died, a musician who calls himself Prince Midnight chose to utilize the skeleton to make a guitar.
While it is without a doubt something unusual to do with the body of a friend or family member, Prince Midnight decided to take this initiative with an end goal to respect his Uncle Filip, who he credits with empowering his own adoration for heavy metal. Well, no doubt we in the 21st century.
Utilizing the skeleton as a base, Prince connected a guitar neck, pickups, volume handles a jack, strings, and hardware to transform the bones into a working instrument.
Take a look at the video below:
Addressing Metal Sucks about the venture, Midnight clarified that burying the skeleton appeared to be a ‘poor way’ to memorialize his uncle
Midnight said: So, I decided to turn Uncle Filip into a guitar, which proved to be challenging. I did a lot of research and no one has ever made a guitar out of a skeleton. So, I did it. I started out consulting with two guys in Dean Guitars’ wood shop in Tampa but they got cold feet.
Anyways, now Uncle Filip can shred for all eternity. That’s how he would want it. I’m super proud of the project and how it serves to honor him, his life and his influence on me.
Filip’s skeleton was initially given to a nearby medical college, it was medicinally delivered and utilized by understudies for quite a long time. After the colege no longer required the skeleton, Filip’s family would not like to incinerate him, so Midnight chose to transform him into an instrument.
After finishing the guitar, Midnight said it ‘plays great and sounds wonderful’.
