Re: Wow.

If I remember correctly the guy here who had the EMG's in his FP, already had them in the guitar when he got it. I think he respected the instrument a bit more to do THIS to it. That's almost sickening....

Re: Wow.

Looks like they took the whole "relic" thing a bit far.

Ever seen Rory Gallagher's Strat? I don't think anyone ever loved or respected their guitar more than Rory, or for that matter Stevie with Old Number 1 - guitars get used and abused, especially if they get used!

Re: Wow.

It's not matter of respect, this guitar hasn't been abused on playing, it was made relic and also in a bad qay in my mind! A real abused guitar would have the most damage under the strings not over and expecially not the upper horn! After saying this, if he likes it, good for him! I keep on not understanding why peolpe buys expensive guitars, with very particular graphics and then destroys them...

Re: Wow.

I personally love that look and I'm sure that axe plays with a feeling of age and smoothness that is definitley not present in pristine guitars.

Re: Wow.

Ouch. I like the "Stronger than Death" slogan on there. Fitting considering the destruction.

Re: Wow.

What does "stronger than death" actually mean?
