Kim Nekroman of the band Nekromantix created his own stand up bass using a coffin.

It is truly a unique experience to build and play your own custom guitar. I wouldn’t know, because I can barely build a house out of LEGO, let alone a functioning guitar. Still, a coffin bass? How awesome does that sound?
