Tony Cochran Guitars created the Kamikazecaster guitar, commissioned by Dracula’s Cabaret in Gold Coast Australia for Dave Kume, aka Kamikaze D, lead guitarist. Dracula’s Cabaret is Australia’s longest running and most successful dinner theater … or circus! The new show, Transfusion, “features fast paced vampire variety that combines acerbic comedy, wicked burlesque, bizarre human circus and off the dial madness.” Check out the video of the wild guitar solo on the Kamikazecaster by Kamikaze D … even in an aerial act!

Yes Tony Cochran Guitars are awesomely playable! Here’s the Pepperjackcaster with the hammer down in France.
Pried from the cold, gray fingers of Jack “Wild Cat” Thompson. He was found dead and naked at the seedy motel just North of Bakersfield, California in 1958. Master of the dirty Honkey Tonk, he spent his life chasing cheap women and drinking cheaper wine. Rumor has it, the device at the bottom was what he called a “Seductorator”. He said it loosened women’s inhibitions: wouldn’t say where he got it.
