    That has to be a paint job that he started and didn't want to finish.

    He can't think that looks good :/

    Reminds me of the people that put cardboard on their car to simulate a body kit. Theres no way they can look at it and say, "Man, that looks great." Someone made a boo boo on that relic job.

    it's awesome that he went to all the trouble to crap the paint up, but couldn't be bothered to remove the bridge, (or anything else apparently) so there's an island of paint underneath it.

    "...and Hipshot tuner in black, which makes tuning alot easier than stock tuners."

    Hmmm...it never occurred to me that stock Fender tuners were so much more difficult to operate than Hipshots...

    My thoughts exactly, but we'd have to go halves on it and I'm first.

    I would have to completely strip the body at this point.

    "First of all the paint has been washed off t ogive it a relic taste"
    LOL! That's a new way to put it. Washed off? Looks like he missed a spot.

    K, in honor of the John Turner Rule #4, here's a pic of my adopted, ugly, reliced, red-headed stepchild of a bass that gets spanked regularly for being so danged UGLY.

    Did I mention how UGLY my stepchild is??? Look at it! U-G-L-Y!!!!
