Introducing the new GHOSTICHORD™ from Spookmann – now YOU TOO can play like Rachmaninoff!
How does it work?
Simply place the jar containing the spirit of the deceased musician into the patented HAUNTBOX™ compartment situated on the right of the keyboard, sit down and let the spectre take care of the rest.
Whether you want to play Mendelsson on a Monday or Fauré on a Friday – simply allow your fingers to be guided by a musical genius from beyond the grave!
The GHOSTICHORD comes with an afterlifetime guarantee and features fully ectoplasm-resistant surfaces.
Spirits of dead musicians sold separately.

It’s great to have a laugh and escape a little. I’d also purchase a Ghostistrum where you insert the spirit of modern guitarists some of which left us far too early …
I think that would be called a Spookelele.
That was fun. The most original story from the photo prompt yet. Well done.
When I saw the picture all I could see was how far over to the left the keyboard was. After that, the most obvious conclusion to draw was that the space on the right-hand side was a compartment to house the captured spirit of a piano-playing ghost.
What a clever idea, I love it! Although I can see the problem with this fabulous product already — guessing those spirits of dead musicians are hard to find, at least the good ones.. Any that I can afford are probably going to be knock-offs!
Just like with other kind of spirits… there are many who can only afford moonshine.
That will be me, then. I’ll be the one drinking — I mean, listening to — the cheap stuff.
Teehee consumerism at its finest! Love it!
I think bottled spirit all of the sudden got a totally new meaning… :-)
What an original story! Magnificent!
This is brilliant, love it.
