    These posts were at first frightening and frankly should not be shown on webpages that impressionable kids could stumble on to! (<- that is a joke by the way... kinda)

    I think it speaks to value not equating to dollars and cents.

    Well, some people pay good money to have others professionally damage (relic?) their guitar.

    There’s a couple good things about black Strats, the best thing is, you can paint them

    So seriously, is it just because there's so many, like doctors and lawyers, or is in fact the actual color?

    Some people don't like them because fingerprints show up on the surface. Don't know why these people feel up their guitars. :)

    At least it's just a Fender and not a Squier :D

    Gotta throw it down the driveway to give it that battlefield-worn look.

    How it was placed there is a lot more relevant than what it was placed on. If I was careful I could probably set my best guitar on a bed of nails without leaving a mark on it.

    I dunno, at first I laughed 'cuz it looked like a mob hit in the Mojave. (I've camped there several times but never stumbled upon a buried Les Paul.)

    Speaking of which, this seems like a totally ridiculous "experiment" on a pretty nice guitar.

    :D While I don't harbor such strong feelings about Blackie Strats, I too find them quite boring and makes me go out and buy something like this--just because. 20200415_124633.jpg
