I'm weird but I love vintage offsets with animal print. I just how much effort someone has done to create something so tacky.
I only own a '64 jag with a homemade silver goldburst and I just can't bring myself to have it removed. :whistle: The original owner bought his jag together with his brother who painted it yellow with jaguar spots.

Is this jazzmaster for sale? Asking for a friend :? :whistle:

Now hear me out here:

Orange drop caps... aged in pure, fresh-squeezed orange juice.

I'm looking for 2 million dollars for 5 percent of my company.
You sound like you def know what you're talking about when it comes to orange drop caps and for that reason I'm out.

Once a 1954 Telecaster. What's with the scales? :fp:

Looks like the cross hatching you see on a gun stock. There's probably some specific name for the pattern.

You could get the 'mojo' back if you filled the 'etchings' with the ground bones of a forsaken orphan, and veneered over it.

Is it bad I kind've like the pickguard? Reminds me of the old Ampeg scroll instruments.

It is always a bit strange to see a guitar that is crafted really specifically to someone's personal tastes getting sold:

It looks like the work was well done - I'm curious on folks' take on the price.

I don't mind the guitar, but the price is absurd.

You can buy them for much less than that in excellent original condition. Another dreamer that doesn't understand that modifications devalue guitars almost always.

No, it's not. This thread is mostly full of people that genuinely seem to hate fun.

All-original guitars are fun!

Weirdly-modified guitars are fun!

...all-original level prices for weirdly-modified guitars are not fun.
