Live Aid / Live 8 guitar

Hey guys.

Some people may be familiar with the Live Aid / Live 8 concerts, and therefore the logo for the events. Looks like this:




Now I want you to imagine that another one of these concerts is planned and Fender (judging by the headstock) releases this guitar to be used in the concert (of course the neck won't be tied in a figure 8 and there won't be a word running through it).
Now, imagining this guitar now actually exists, what would you guys say?

The rest of this thread is up to you.

Re: Live Aid / Live 8 guitar

the tone knob is to close to the volume knob and it's a bugger to play sitting down.

Re: Live Aid / Live 8 guitar

Pain in the arse to play sitting down, and yeah @ the volume/tone knob thing, and... A FENDER WITH A TOM BRIDGE AND LES PAUL PICKUP SELECTOR? I think not.

But other than that it'd look b.a. to play that on stage.

Knowing Fender, they'll charge $4890523096349085732409867340987309673429086723096 73904867390467349086340986739086730967039467390867 39047340968730986734908673409673409687342098673409 86732490867340968734908673409673240986732096732409 86734290683490867
for a 25 guitar limited edition release. If they charged something reasonable, like less than $1500, then sign me up.

Re: Live Aid / Live 8 guitar

Unless your born in Africa, or really love Africa, or the money goes to donations that fund Africa, why would anyone want to buy it, unless they got a tonne of spare cash and collect weird guitars.

Not for me. To many other guitars on my wish list, before this one ...

CHRIS DIPINTO WAS CONTRACTED TO BUILD 8 GUITARS. THEY LOOKED JUST LIKE THAT. OF COURSE THE NECKS ARE NOT LIKE WHAT YOU SEE ABOVE. THERE'S ONE HANGING IN HIS SHOP. HE IS A GREAT GUY AND BUILDER. AND NO I DON'T GET PAID FOR THIS. CHECK THEM OUT IN PHILLY!

Re: Live Aid / Live 8 guitar

Personally, the volume and tone knobs need to be closer together...
