    Yes. You have to get them replaced every month, or else they decay and smell bad.

    lmao i never read that over, that did turn out pretty brutal

    Allright lemme try that again

    If gigging with a pedulla bass, since there are live butterflies in the headstock, try to keep "butterfly chasers" out of the audience since they will chase you with their oversized nets.

    Sounds less funny in the long way, too bad I mis-typed it the first time :(

    lol

    I think drunk Canadians are better off, cos at least maybe then they realize they're Canadian. Here, example #A:
    Non-Drunk Canadian: "Eh, what's up dude, eh?"
    Drunk one: "Dude, we're freaking CANADIAN, you know what that meeaaaaanns? (eh)"
    Non-drunk: "Eh, yeah"
    *both jump off bridge*

    :D ALL IN JEST!

    How it actually works is that when Fodera starts on the neck they install a caterpillar in the headstock. By the time the bass is finished it has become a butterfly.

    Yes, I do have way too much time on my hands.

    not a bass or a butterfly, but interesting nonetheless.

    Actually, I agree, it'd look much better with blue nails. No idea why.

    is that a homemode fretboard extension? ha ha

    the guitar reminds of the Foo Fighter video for Everlong. i am sure there are plenty of High Five jokes for that thing.
