About This Listing

Once again "Skullbox", made of crocodile skull, design not typical for cigarbox guitars.

The guitar is dedicated to the dark side of Louisiana’s voodoo religion, particularly to bokor – black sorcerer. Bokor often puts his power into a zombie, his slave and a tool for hard work and labor.
The neck has veve of Baron Samedi – spirit of death, dead, and even sexuality and kids birth.
Cross of Baron Samedi is not a Christian crucifix, but an all-culture-famous crossroads sign. 
The religion came to New Orleans in the early 19th century, with slaves brought here from Haiti.
Its rituals often included the use of snakes, black cats, cocks, blood drinking and sexual intercourse, an animal had to be sacrificed almost every ceremony.
This crocodile whose brothers live in the muddy waters of Louisiana was sacrificed to music.


Scale – 486 mm (19,1"), neck made of chestnut with maple fretboard covered with bee wax, 22 frets, nut made of grecian laurel, locking tuners.
1 piezoelectric pickup near bridge, 1 volume control.  D-G-D tuning.
