As a guitarist in a metal band, I often find myself trying to come up with new ways to one up the other bands in the area. Sometimes this involves coming up with a cooler riff or better show. Sometimes, though, it's the gear you play! The problem with that is, like most guitarists, I'm broke.
The other night I was watching the Evil Dead movies and I half jokingly made a comment about a guitar designed like the necronomicon... The NECRONOMITAR! Well, that got my gears turning. I spent many days contemplating how to do this, and now here it is... the MOST death metal guitar ever!
Check the final step for more ideas I've come up with based on the same materials.
This instructable should not ruin your guitar's sound in any way, shape, or form, but that being said, if you do ruin your guitar don't blame me. I'm not the one modifying your stuff. Also, use your brain, this instructable is for cheapo guitars like Strat knockoffs. If you do this to your guitar make sure its one you don't "need" just in case you mess up.

Paper or cardboard
Latex mold maker
