I happened to run into a friend at the Anderson’s and in the conversation he mentioned that a friend of his was using rattlesnake hide for some project and selling it on Ebay. I am often trying to come up with a unique concept for a guitar and I imagined using rattlesnake skin to create a Western-themed guitar. I had seen snake skin on a guitar but not exactly like this. So after assembling the necessary materials and a plan of action I gave it a shot. 

  • Weights 7.5 lbs.
  • The Snake is Western Diamondback
  • Body is Swamp Ash
  • Maple Neck
  • Rosewood Fretboard w/12″ radius
  • Vintage Style hum-cancelling pickups
  • 4-way switch
  • Brass, compensated saddles
  • Finished in lacquer
  • As you might imagine, looks and sounds awesome!
