Dismal Ax Muleskinner SC-0

dismal-ax-muleskinner-guitar

Mules were the backbone of overland transportation in America before the advent of the steam engine, and remained a vital part of logging and agriculture long into the era of the iron horse. They are, however, much smarter and less cooperative by nature than their mechanical counterparts, though nearly as tough, and typically require something other than sheer brute force to convince them to perform the tasks they are put to. This was the domain of the muleskinner~ to outsmart (“skin”) these ornery beasts, and keep freight moving across the expanding frontier at two miles per hour.

The Muleskinner guitars and basses are, for the most part, plain and simple, utilitarian instruments, with either a basic slab, rafter, or barnwood topped body, available in several different finishes and hardware options.

This Dismal Ax Muleskinner SC-0 has a one piece Yellow Poplar body with torched edges, a Maple neck & Black Locust fretboard. Pickups are a set of Bareknuckle Flat ’50s that matches well with this guitar.
