    I want to see the headstock. Is it in the shape of a Les Paul body?

    I wanted to post that last week but lost the link and couldn't track it down. The headstock is a tiny Les Paul body. Too funny, but still not as good as the Stig bass

    I don't see a price.

    That thing has been played into the ground. If you have the tools and know how to fix it up on your own, I don't see any harm in throwing $200 or $300 bucks at it.

    Anything else and you can get a good LP something or other in much better shape.

    I have no idea. It was posted on Craigslist with the invitation to “check it out this weekend at the flea market”. Might just be one of those guitars for display only.

    it also has what looks like a hard tail bridge, but a locking nut...

    But anything that's been played into the ground has to be good enough that someone wanted to play it into the ground.

    11 years ago I went to Guitar Center so I could get a white Epi Les Paul Custom. I played every one they had and I hated all of them, so I started trying out pretty much ever other Les Paul they had. There was a a white Gibson Studio that was pretty good, but I tried a nice looking Standard (that was way over what I could spend) they had I'd been eyeing the whole time that cost entirely too much.

    I traded in every guitar (other than my first one) and pedal I had to put towards it and my dad covered the rest. And 11 years later, it's still pretty much the only guitar I play. I have a bunch of guitars, but that's the only one I sound like me on.

    I wonder what his budget is for novelty custom instruments. They are all great, but none of them look cheap, and every time I see a photo, he is holding a different one.

    Dennis Dalsgaard (sp?) has done most of them. He's something of a guitar building legend in Denmark. If I remember Stig and himself are good friends.

    When you play electronic extreme baroque classical experimental music with black metal influences and you need a guitar to fit your style...

    It's a hobbit... a seemingly asexual creature with shaved armpits but very hairy feet.

    A new invasive species in what appears to be the Midwest.

    Ah yes they are believed to have escaped captivity in Nashville and have been spreading fast.

    Typically I hate Gibson. I think this was a robot that had a bunch of FX in it. Remove the robot tuners and the stupid X inlay, and I'd play the shit out of that guitar.

    Its clear that is a functional guitar and not a piece of art because the only parts of the guitar that don't look like a bag of smashed assholes are the fretboard, pickups and bridge.

    Edit: Though I wouldn't want to play it out of fear of tetanus.

    I don't know if everyone finds this one funny, but i played this at the Guitar Center in West Hollywood. It's a USA RC7, but the Floyd was replaced with something like they would use on a headless. It felt good but you couldnt reach the fine tuners with your fingers, making it impossible to tune. They also strung it backwards... I feel I should also mention that it's as gross as the rest of LA! 20191209_140202.jpg 20191209_140252.jpg 20191209_140230.jpg
