    Not only that, but it's also haunted by the ghost of Cher.

    That's actually pretty hot. If it were actually a Fender I'd be interested.

    Reminds me of a Pedulla Rapture.
     
  5. that paint job is scary
     
  6. Yammy, GC special. Very nice job on the paint thought, even though it not really MY thing. BTW, what's the deal with the string spacing?!



    Are you serious? lol

    That A string is currently defying the laws of physics.

    I actually think the paint job is pretty neat. It's not as gaudy as most instruments with females painted on them. The string spacing is quite odd, though.

    Edit:

    I think the A string might be haunted.

    they relisted it as a Yammy, is that an empty hole where a volume pot should be or are my eyes being decieved by the paintjob..?

    oh might I add... Shipping & Handling to Michigan: $72.32 :rolleyes:
     
  15. My guess is that the strings are de-tensioned and the A-string is not sitting in its slot in the nut. Since there is no closeup of the headstock, I can't be certain.

    it says the string is broken...
     

  17. Absolute clinching proof that people don't read the threads they post on. Cerb posts ths twice and still people ask about the A string.

    Ya, speaking of the A string, what's wrong with it? It looks de-tensioned.
