    OK, well that certainly describes my Fender. All started in 82 with a can of blue Schwinn bicycle paint, that Schaller bridge and a set of Duncan Hot Stack J pickups, soon replaced by EMG PJ's. Only original parts are the body and neck plate. None of them are cheap parts, but it's always had a ratty homemade look about it once I trashed the original finish, and especially does now.

    OK, I'm a rat-rodder. Time to line up for my tattoo.

  2. Jazzmaster's are the sexiest 6 banger ever. I've had a couple of nice old ones and wish I still did. I'm just limping along with a strat now but I'm lousy at little guitar anyway. I keep one around for writing, show the guitarist what the idea is, then ask him to do it with the proficiency I lack. Yours is a beaut man.

    Redid my bass to tone down the punk aesthetic and add more black. I think it's better this time.

    LOL! Izzy hardly ever gets scolded. She's the cat that can do no wrong. But that's just my wife talking. She does plenty wrong! But she's cute.

  16. But it was the opposite of a beach. Just a leftover bowling alley in the north of Germany...

    That is a nice one. I like most of the Fano stuff I see.

    I don't think that's so much distressed as "slightly concerned" :D
