Are your prayer beads maple or rosewood?

So let's do this: Buy a Warmoth body with a nice tiger flame maple, finished off in a red dye.
Apparently, after getting bored with looking at such nice work, paint the top flat black...with Krylon. And also leave the bridge plate on while painting it so there's a reminder of what it used to look like.
Idjits exist everywhere!!!!

Behold the awfulness!

LOL, you can custom order a chambered mahogany body for less. I guess the upcharge is for the custom paint. :-)

Then there was Francis Rossi of Status Quo and his trademark green 1957 Tele which he had to replace after 46 years of gigs - extract from a press article in quotes:

"Rossi bought the Telecaster in Glasgow for £70 when it was still in its original sunburst colour but used some furniture paint to originally paint it black.

He added:" At first it looked fantastic, it was black and mean but when I did a gig it looked really horrible. So, I took it back home, sanded it down and painted it green instead. I've never actually finished painting it and now it's in a really terrible state.

The guitar also has an unusual hole in its body which the guitarist made with a drill to feed his cable through as it kept dropping out while he was swinging the instrument about on stage."

What the article doesn't say is that the green paint was garden fence stain and the hole he drilled through the body was quite a large one. Still, I expect it's worth a whole lot of cash anyway.

Oh, bring that up AGAIN, Malcolm.

I've stated many times here that the sheep was 19 years old *and a female*, so it's not like I'm some kind of freak, okay?

Here's a pic.
