Hm....I'm not sure if it could stand up to the pull of the strings but it would be epic.

I would think bone deteriorates faster than wood.

Maybe some dried stretched guts as strings, a taxidermy corpse as the body.

I'm thinking of an acoustic, cause I can't think of any necro electrics of pickups ideas.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

it would probably be flexable enough and strong enough, be a bitch to cut and carve tho

I dunno how well it would bend with the truss rod, but if you could pull it off it would be pretty cool.

Would a stuffed corpse make it a hollow body?

an ivory fret board interesting,if you can pull it then it will be truly amazing,good luck with the cutting, i think ivory/bone is more brittle than wood so you mite have sum probs there,also expensive cos its illigal 2 harvist it now or sutin,i would definatly recomend going for that 7 ft tall neibour of your instead,no law against poaching him.

bones are strong but not that dense. they have lots of little fibers that leave tiny pores.

On Mythbusters they get bones from a shop that has them mainly for medical students. Maybe you could find out where it is, or if there's a similar place near you.
#26
You could get a spine, off a sheep or something from a butcher's, You cen strip the meat off just by leaving it outside for a year or so to let maggots/worms eat most of it - then leave it to saok in domesdos or something to kill any disease. Or you could soak it in acid, You have to be careful because acid can dissolve bone eventually.

Then encase the WHOLE thing in clear plastic, once you've shaped it it'll take ALOT of polishing to get it see through again.

Personally i wouldn't risk using bone as the fretboard, just put on a rosewood one.

Yes (well maybe not to videoing it) petshops sell live mealworms for feeding fish (mealworms are beetle larve bread for feeding animals). But you'd have to be careful they don't escape, And DO IT OUTSIDE, cos the smell will be awful.

I think this would not be possible, I believe bones are somwhat hollow inside, and have bone fibers stretching to the walls to keep it together.

Ergo, visa vi, you would need to find an already perfectly shaped bone.

i'm sorry but this is a UG thread and i'm not gonna be able to give u any info if u dont have pics. I'll need a pic of ur neighbor.

I think that is the best, most plausible idea. How badass would a spine encased in some sort of strong plastic be? Infinitely I tell you!
