Go to your grave in a guitar coffin

November 11, 2011 -

HERE'S a strum of comfort as you climb that stairway to Heaven — a coffin featuring Jimmy Page's guitar.

The "flight case" casket is emblazoned with a Les Paul axe like the one played by Led Zeppelin rock god Jimmy.

Other designs available for those who shun a sombre traditional coffin include a phone box, a ballet shoe — and a crate of veg with the jokey slogan: "Rest in Peas."All are the work of Guernsey company Creative Coffins, who also offer caskets shaped like a narrowboat, DJ turntables, a bottle of wine — and even one like a SKIP.

It's one way to put the, er, "fun" in funeral.
