A Florida man has made a unique electric guitar out of his dead uncle's skeleton.
The Tampa musician who is known by his stage name 'Prince Midnight' build the instrument out of his uncle's remains, who introduced him to the world of rock music, reports Indian Express.
In an Instagram post, he stated that his uncle Filip, who died in a motorcycle accident in Greece in 1996, had donated his body for the development of science.
Unfortunately, as schools in Greece discontinued using actual skeletons, the remains of his uncle ended up in a cemetery for which his family paid rent.
"After 20 years, he ended up in a cemetery my family had to pay rent on. Like, literally in a wooden box. It's a big problem in Greece because the Orthodox religion doesn't want people cremated," Midnight told Huff Post.
When Midnight received the shipment of his uncle's remains, he was quite confused as to what to do with it, until his guitar-maker friend inspired him to do something totally out of the box.
"It just popped into my head. I'm going to turn Uncle Fill into a guitar. And I was like, that is the best way to honour him. He would love that idea," he told CBC Radio.
Using the spinal cord and rib cage as the base, the musician then attached strings, volume knobs, guitar neck, jack, pickups, and electric board to transform the remains into an instrument.
According to Huff Post, the musician is forbidden by law to sell the guitar. Midnight has named the guitar "skelecaster".
"Skelecaster" produces a different sound from the usual guitars. Midnight, during an interview with Metal Suck said that the instrument "plays perfect and sounds awesome."
