LJ you should complete your next guitar, and then, drag it around on a chain behind your cycle for a while! Then leave your sander on and accidentally move part of the body into it.

And only then, put fresh new pickups, pickguard, knobs and switches on it.

I love the look of this-- the natural wood grain, the simplicity of the design. One knob!

I like it too, I think Mr. Dart is making a statement that bass is not about any tone that doesn't come out of your fingers.

I agree & had the same thought.. as a 'signature' piece, this makes a LOUD statement. It's literally just a piece of wood with four strings, that you can plug in. EVERYTHING about it is what you DO with it.

the places the paint is worn through don't make a lot of sense either. and the rust in the bridge and input jack on the other one.... affected. Not a fan.

A $10 drafting aid that lets you do a little work on your side gig right under the boss-man's nose.
Or as a tactile aid to daydreaming your stardom, money for nothing, and chicks discount.
They are never free, ever.

Bluegrass music has been strong in Czechoslovakia, now the Czech Republic, for well over 100 years.
Looks like a Canadian Mountie on the guitar.

That was interesting. He's got a few interesting jigs he uses. Looks like he used reclaimed pine studs. Might have been one of those barn-caster challenges. Looks like my mom's kitchen table. Except it doesn't have my brother's initials carved in it.

This is a timelapse video of a Les Paul style guitar that is made of reclaimed wood that has been salvaged from deconstructed buildings in Chicago. The neck is made from an old mahogany table leaf.

If you really screw up the face, and don't feel like it or have the wherewithal to fix it, the are a hundred vinyl overlays.

A few years ago I would have doubted a vinyl overlay would take any abuse, but the green on this truck is vinyl.
I saw it 9 years ago and again last fall... it looks the same.

You don't see a lot of that though. durability may be an issue. you could always poly over a wrap to make it permanent.
