Stratton Violins is in the business of making the violin a “cool” instrument for today’s youth and death metal bands to take up. Not sure how that’s going but their product is pretty awesome.
They make Skull Violins. Instead of using real skulls which probably wouldn’t sound as good they make their violins from pure awesome and some wood. I’m guessing they can get away with this because they’re electric guitars so they don’t have to worry about a large hollow body to amplify and project the sound.
I don’t play the violin, or any other instrument. but I would be more than happy to hang one of these beauties in my office. Note to self, get an office. The prices range from $2000 to $5000 and you can get all sorts of customizations to match your style.
