Guitar designer Molly Friedrich, aka Porkshanks, has designed many a guitar in her life, but this commissioned bass for Benjamin Ensor of the band Mungus was a particular pleasure. She says: “He asked me to create a Jules Verne-inspired clockwork Lovecraftian beast… and other than that for a theme, he gave me permission to do whatever I wanted… so here it is, 16-inch tentacles and all!”
Luthier Scott Baxendale was commissioned by Danny Davenport, a Warner Brothers executive, in 1988, to build a one-of-a-kind guitar for use in Travis Tritts debut video for the song Country Club. This guitar features an elaborate, abalone rose inlay displaying the Warner Brothers logo in the headstock. The vine inlay in the finger board is comprised of more than 120 pieces of abalone and mother-of-pearl, featuring Bugs Bunny in the fifth fret.
