    And knocking a tooth or two out smacking your face on the ground.

    I thought it was appropriate to use that Tele, because the paintjob looks like it goes on a car, so I pictured it covered with sponsor ads, like in NASCAR.

    50 grand is pretty steep. I mean for 50G you can get a little sticker on a race car and get international exposure.

    It's an interesting idea. Everything is for sale. I think he would have done better with a reasonable price
