Every Strat needs Gibson Kluson Tulip tuners, and every Les Paul needs some of these.
How about SE tuners on the top and some LH Trapezoid tuners (off of an old 12 string with a collapsed top) on the bottom of a cheep Epi LP? Man, I keep thinking about that bolt-neck LP copy husk at one of the flea markets here in town. I think they want $20 for it. One Tele neck PU, some dorky 60's Japanese style pickup for the bridge, use a trapeze tailpiece instead of stop tail. Mebbe make a floating bridge like an L5? Gah, you guys make me do bad things to a guitar.
Why do I hear Gene Wilder as Willie Wonka in the background, saying "I wouldn't do that" in a very creepy way?
FB Marketplace laugh of the day:
How is this a laugh of the day? It's priced very well and has some good upgrades....
EDIT - I see the the lower horn 'cutout' now lol
Oh no!!! lol
IMHO, when someone like Mike Bloomfield does that sort of thing to a Fender product, its cool.
In other cases... maybe not so much.
Sounds funny, until you go to Reverb and see that each one of these is listed for $700+
Even if the guitar is being used ironically, should any particular instrument be connected with fame then you've got an eventual money maker, in my observation.
So it goes.
List price and sale price are two totally different animals, but yeah, a couple have sold for some crazy money in the past six months. Interesting! I bought one for $180 a year ago from GC and sold it for $240 and 6 months ago and I thought I came out on the better side of the deal.
Some of these are examples of why some people should not have power tools. Or hand tools capable of cutting wood.
How about this guy?
That's a unfair example, Reed can play a willow stick with dental floss...
Are you asking about the price jump, or about sounding funny/not funny?
Why would someone pay that for a Hello kitty guitar .its nothing special just a paint job.
I think the answer is "collectors" and "crossover markets." Apparently the Hello Kitty universe is full of people with lots of disposable income.
I guess so, I think I could buy something nice for that price.
I assure you, Hello Kitty won't be getting any of my money...
A lot of collectors items are nothing special — why is somebody paying premium for sealed item, it's just a piece of plastic wrap ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
