This is a store. Miami vintage guitars.
I don't care. They can look as stupid as they want too.
I think they got a hold of some vintage 80's cocain with that guitar.
They don't seem to be real bright.
To quote them. "This is a fantastic guitar. Priced according to what it sounds and plays.. i dont want to strip it and sell for parts, in which case i could easily get my money. "
RRRRREEEEEEAAAAALLLYYYY??????
OK! Good luck with that.

I did something similar to a Maple Body 84' Baretta back in 1986-87 but not quite as drastic on the lower horn. But I went the extra mile and did the full blown Vai Lion Claw with a 1/4" round file and elbow grease. And I put a $250 Warmth Maple Strat neck on it with Birdseye and abalone dots, sprayed it white and stickered it up.

When I sold that guitar, I got WAY more for it than I would have "pristine", "Closet Classic" or "Kramer Forum Approved" condition.

It was frickin' Badass and everyone that played on it loved it.

You actually *used* those mods, as was normal back in the day. I have a feeling some of these others that pop up are buggered up simply to look cool. When it's done the right way, you know it just by lookin' and certainly by playing. :toast
