    Your gig report is sadly lacking in food and dancing girl photographs.

    Here here, cavorting about in ridiculous spiral towers is no basis for a gig report, Bring on the dancing girls I say. :D:hyper:

    I'm confused. When did Gibson start making headless basses?
     
  10. When I was a teenager growing up in the bay area, we called it Coitus Tower.

  14. Maybe Gibson should sell relic'd instruments: the headstocks are snapped off at the factory so you don't have to worry about it happening later.
     
  15. You are a ghost now so you should have just floated to the top.
    Learn your powers rookie. :banghead:

    As I remember it that’s all they ever made. Headless guitars, too.
