    Actually, I'm not much for "bandwagon patriotism," but I think that bass is kind of cool. I wouldn't buy it, but I wouldn't laugh at someone who did either.

    It's not even a new idea!

    Gibson made some guitars back in the 1980s with a map shaped body like that.

    This is the second time this month it's up for sale. I wonder whether demand will require him to finish his limited edition run of ten pieces.

    And as Bunnybass said (yes, it's there already), what about Alaska and Hawaii???

    Looks potentially precarious in the Northeast. A few false moves, and Maine's gonna "secede".
  9. Brian beat me to it. That's exactly what I was thinking when I first saw it. We all know Fender makes some guitars with Tex-Mex pickups, but, what would you call that one? A Tex-Oakie pup? :p
    And isn't it so "Topographically correct" the way the bridge is right where the Rockies would be?

    I betcha that thing would go over real big at a July 4th barbeque. ;) All kidding aside.

  14. Personally, I think it's a cool idea. I think the craftsmanship is really awesome, too. I doubt I would ever buy or play one, though. Too retro for me :D

    Wow Louisiana got the tone knob, we're moving up in the country.

    Also whoever buys this will also need to be a mexican-made cable, since the input jack is right there on the border.
