    Seen em on gimmick guitars, and now its just on a bass. No big deal, but they do look pretty cool for using on a gig or two.
     
  4. I thought I saw a B.C. Rich like that once. It'd be cooler if it was glow in the dark.:p

    Not "sometimes". The Dan Armstrongs are back for those who like that sort of thing.

    I saw a guy playing one of those clear BC Rich guitars. It sounded alright through loads of distortion...

  9. i'm sure that sounds really good with all of that water in there. reminds me of the pimp shoes with gold fish in them.

    I always wanted to play one through a Mojotone amp to get the audience worked up -

    Fieldy only NEEDS one string. He's just that good.

    Bah, and Jaco needed 4. :rolleyes: ;)

    I recall Riggs of Rob Zombie had a guitar filled with "snakes blood".
     
  13. I remember seeing a pic from some US trade show in an old copy of Guitarist of a see-thru water-filled guitar with live goldfish inside.


    a lava-lamp guitar could be a cool stage prop- anyone done that?
     
  14. I seem to remember reading about a *granite* bass once about 12 years (or more) ago. Someone took a headstone and put pickups and a neck on it. Supposedly weighed about 25lbs (or more) but had sustain like nobody's business.

    I'm trying to find any references on it but I'm coming up with nada.

    PS When I'm done totally f**king up my Essex 5 string fretless with my decoupage project I'll post the pics on here and on BunnyBass!
