Okay I admit it, I was inspired by the sheeps' fluff Dean Z guitar and matching bass used by Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill in ZZ Top. But when our leadsinger/Rythem guitarist asked me to modify three matching guitars so that our band would have a look, all that it took was a shopping spree to the nearest clothing supplies' shop. and this was the result (i'm the one with the Kiss T-shirt playing the Hybrid fender strat (it has the body of a mid seventies strat and a 1989 neck) with the Kahler Whammy. But because this happens to be a bassplayers board, I feel obliged to include a picture of Mary our bassplayer with her early eighties Squier Bullet. That bass was a nightmare when I received it in my shop, it had a cracked headstock, the pickguard and pickup were AWOL and the frets were all torn out. I re-fretted the neck, Glued new pieces of maple to what remained of the headstock applied strips of rosewood and spruce vineer to hide the glue joints and finally re-routed it to make it look like a Rickenbacker headstock. I put in a dimarzio pickup, replaced the missing pickguard with a brushed aluminium one (not a total fit but it does the job) and she was overjoyed when I gave it back to her. Her only complaint was the fact that her agressive picking style leaves her shirts full of small pieces of Fluff.
