Too funny. Ha, yeah played in bands in my misspent youth.
lolol. That was great.
I spent 23 years playing Fenders. Not from Cars or Trucks. And I can't think of a deadlier up close weapon than a Fender Precision.
...or the shorter scale Fender Jazz bass for really close up. Then bury them in an Ampeg SVT cabinet. Plenty of room in there.
A Norlin era Gibson Les Paul with the three ply maple (set) neck & the pancake body, that weighs in @ about 11 to 12 pounds would make an excellent instrument for blunt force injuries & death upon just about any victim.

It is also possible to set-up an old tube amp to electrocute someone when they pickup a guitar attached to the amp via cable. All you would need to do is convince the victim to pickup the guitar. It happened to me twice over a period of many years but it was accidental in both incidents. Also, there was not enuff amperage to kill me in either occasion. But it is possible to tweak things to achieve such a dastardly outcome. Jus' sayin' ............
I've been zapped so many times from a guitar amp and PA microphone being out of phase, I can't remember. As long as your feet aren't wet and you're not standing on concrete, you're ok.
The real voltage plus an appreciable amount of current is in the 500 VDC plus or minus B+ voltage supply in the rectifier circuit of an amp with 4 6L6 tubes. That shit can knock you on your ass if it gets a good hold on you while you're doing a repair job.
Or even worse, the horizontal output transistor on one of those old CGA or EGA monitors from the 1980's. Get ahold of that, and you'll turn Amish and give up electricity for good.
