The guitar, after being refinished, would scratch a lot of itches. That said, it does all about everything my cyclone does for me. I know I'm in the minority, but I prefer a strat trem. I can see where this guitar, if offered in different colors, would be successful. I am interested to see what that humbucker is about. most descriptions are vague at best.

i'm kinda drawn to the bass more than the guitar but not liking the p-bass pickup, i'm thinking it would look a lot better with a mustang bass pickup in there with an aged white pickguard! possibly reverse the pickup too to match the original bass v layout! the p-bass pickup just doesn't look right!

Just wanted to post this close-up, reminding me why I have serious gas for a burgundy mist guitar :?

Google image search "burgundy" below, why is burgundy mist called burgundy mist? It should be called purple metallic.

Because its a MIST of burgundy. Not a splash.

Seems like Oldsmobile were really into mist colours back in '59 :D
  • silver mist
  • willow mist
  • emerald mist
  • sapphire mist
  • aqua mist
  • burgundy mist
  • golden mist
  • bronze mist
8 out of 14. Not bad.

The Jag has the coolest upper horn and the Mustang has the coolest lower. This doesn't do it for me.
