A bizarre case of a man from Florida built a guitar using the skeleton of his uncle.

YouTuber Prince Midnight or Yaago Anax in real life build a functioning guitar using his dead uncle’s skeleton.

During his interview, Prince Midnight said the skeleton belonged to his uncle, Filip, who passed away in the ‘90s in Greece due to a car accident.

“He originally donated his skeleton to the local college and was medically prepared for the school,” Midnight shared.

But two decades later, the school returned the remains to the influencer’s family.

“After 20 years, he ended up in a cemetery my family had to pay rent on,” he said. “Like, literally in a wooden box. It’s a big problem in Greece because orthodoxy religion doesn’t want people cremated.”

Solving his family’s problem, he turned his dead uncle into an electronic guitar. He mainly used his deceased relative’s ribcage, backbone, and pelvic bones.

“At first, (my mother) said it was sacrilegious and the work of the devil ― you know how moms are,” said Anax. “But I asked her, ‘Uncle Filip was the biggest metal head of anybody. Where would he rather be? In the ground or shredding?’”

While he admitted building it using the skeleton as very challenging, he managed to create a fully functioning guitar which he named “Filip Skelecaster.”

“Now Uncle Filip can shred for all eternity,” he added. “That’s how he would want it. I’m super-proud of the project and how it serves to honor him, his life and his influence on me.”
