    This is a guitar! :eek: So why did I post it? It's a Noodles (Offspring) sig model. Each model comes "handwrapped in duct tape, so that each guitar has it's own fingerprint." :rolleyes:

    I like it. To me the Offspring attitude of punk mixed with humor and sarcasm suggests that they are laughing their asses off at whoever would buy the guitar to "be just like the guy in the Offsring."

    I thought the "paint" job looked kinda cool before I realized that was tape. Is there a laquer over the tape or could you just peel it off?

    On second thought...that thing would sound great. Duct tape has amazing sound atributes...b.s.

    Yeah, you gotta love any band that makes fun of their fans. Nothing like appreciating those who put you where you are... :rolleyes:

    EDIT: rolleyes intended for Offspring attitude, not pilotjones. He's probably right, after all.

    Understood. But I was thinking of it being making fun of the band-hero-worshippers in general, not as a dis to all of their fans. But either way, it's just me reading into it.

    Wax paper is for old ladies and ninnies, aluminum (aluminium for you Brits) covered in contact grease is where it's at.

    Question: If a piece of the tape comes off, and you stick another piece on in it's place, is it a refin?

    Thats enough duct tape to make McGyver jealous.

    Does it come with a Swiss Army knife too?
