That's one way to keep a neck from wiggling.
I had a Lead for a little while - I can understand the drive to glue the neck in place!

This is either genius or insanity. I'm not sure which. Looks like they did a super clean job of it too.

We don't often see the culprits in action. Here are two of the best in the biz, so we can cut them some slack.

...well check out this amazingly wonderful old Ibanez Jazz Bass... WITH A BULLET!!!

...or just a HOLE in it...

why? he tells the story: they were playing at some local festival in france and they were afraid that somebody could steal their gear. so they put holes in the instruments and chained them to something... with a massive chain!

dang... but it IS quite a history (in one pic he even put a chain thru it! :D
i love delay SO much ...that i procrastinate all the time.

From the auction listing:

"For sale: This instrument was custom made for my father in the early 1960's. It is a fusion of a Fender 1960 Jazzmaster guitar and 4 string Mandocaster. My father was a well respected Country/Bluegrass musician and this instrument is well played with wear noted on the neck and fretboard. He had this made because he would often play both in a single song, and switching was easy. Everything on it is original from the time, including buttons, knobs, tremolo bar, pick ups, etc. The strings were changed over the years, of course. The peghead for the high E string on the guitar is dmaged, but works fine.This guitar plays so easy and smooth. I have included pictures that represent most views, but if you would like additional pictures, message me and I will send them. I have plugged this in and they both work through amplifier, although I am not a professional musician. It is surprisingly lightweight and the strap holders allow for great balance. Because of the unusual shape, there is no case included. My father made a case from plywood that it has been stored in, but the weight to ship that would be prohibitive, cost wise. This is both a collector's item and a versatile musical instrument for the right person. My father passed 12 years ago, and I have kept this because I am the only one of his children that play. I have not played this for years, and I feel he would be happy if this found a home where it was played. Message me with any questions before bidding. "

It looks like it was played a lot.

I think it's kinda cool, in a "I had to do what I had to do" kind of way.
