"Creature From the Black Lagoon" (1954)

"In 1954, a strange prehistoric beast lurked in the depths of the Amazonian jungle. A group of scientists tried to capture it and bring it back to civilization for study... I'm pretty sure it's a documentary... Sixty years later I got to commemorate their discovery by creating a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, Dean Guitar." -Tanner

Tanner Monroe created this "Creature From the Black Lagoon" (1954) custom guitar for Spooky Empire's Ultimate Horror Weekend, in Orlando Florida. It was autographed by one of Hollywood's greatest underwater performers/directors and last living Universal Monsters himself, Ricou Browning. The guitar was also signed by the still very glamorous starlet Julie Adams! It was an honor to meet them both. Julie said "Oh! that's my foot... I recognize it anywhere!".

 

The "Creature From the Black Lagoon" custom guitar was hand drawn with a regular old ball point pen that was donated by the hotel staff on the day of the anual costume contest... It's true. Progress pics and the final piece of art COMING SOON! (What there are of them that is...)
