I want to know what the guy who did that thought after. Did he legitimately think "oh yeah, this looks better" or what? Because he's an idiot regardless.

Matches a lot of things from the seventies though; everyone had blown a hole in their face by then.

It should have been one of those when it was still a guitar.

You could use it to do a cover medley of Metallica’s One and John Williams The Immolation Scene from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, maybe round it out with The Imperial March for good measure.

They could have made it fretless and had the fretboard covered in a ton of undefinable gunk for the Jaco tone...

Surely it's illegal to do this to a vintage instrument?
It's like knocking down a heritage listed house. Ha!

I have to admit I sort of like the rainbow fade neck, but...

the neck fade is great but that hippie crap, well it doesn't need it.

I think the answer to most of these “Why did you do this thing to me?”

Is drugs.

Or aliens.

But mostly it’s drugs.
