    no joke,

    but i heard in the early days of an unamed yet vastly ubiqutious company, they used belt buckles for much of the wear. *shrug*

    Doesn't Fender Custom Shop use (current day) the handful of belt buckles?




    Want to relic your bass? Just tie a rope to it and drag it behind your car for a few miles. Return some videos to Blockbuster or something. Drive home, hose it off and you're done.

    For a moment, looking at the thread title looked he wanted someone to replace the lice his bass once had.

    There was a thread a week ago about how to make it look older...

    There were also some amusing posts. Do what Jaco did!
