    Hell, I have a custom ESP that was built by one of the head dudes at ESP and I picked it up for less than some EIIs go for. The only thing is it's so 80s it makes Steel Panther look like the Backstreet Boys.

    Jesus that first line. Like...are we supposed to know (or care) what other less-controvertial guitars you've owned? Like...are they just other pink strats? Or do you have swaztika's painted on any? Or a decal of the 2nd Ammendment? Or "Free Tibet/Mumia" text on it?

    *sigh* "I modified it to look like Connor Mockasin's guitar". There. how hard is that.

    Before it was it's own brand, Squires were mexican-made, Fender-branded products. At least in this case, it may not be a lie. Kinda like how Ram and Genesis are their own brands now, but someone with an older one would say they had a Dodge Ram or Hyundai Genesis.

    My favorite part of that Craigslist post is at the bottom "You're not gonna see many of these around." Yup, there's a good reason for that.

    I'm kidding...he's just showing the extra knobs that will ship with it. It reminded me of this thread, though.

    getting lazy in my old age and this would have kept me from reaching over to my amp or bending over to adjust my pedals

    I get the half guitar half bass thing but would it had been too hard to have the humbuckers over all the strings? Also perspective makes it seem ten feet long.
