    Does anyone know what the chord around PC's bass in this picture might be?

    Bib makes the most sense , its not visible maybe it slipped off.

    Or possibly a home-made pick up ?

    I vote Mistletoe.

    My guess would be a bib, and the reason you can't see the actual bib part is because it's hugging the backside of the upper bout.

    I know cuz I was there. :ninja:
  5. Judging by his fingering, I'd say G7 with a flat 9. :smug:
