    You are correct. You did not say it was amusing. Neither did I. (;^)
    You said it was a joke. I disagree that it was intended as a joke. I don’t really know if it were meant to be taken literally or as a joke. That was perhaps presumptuous of me to th8nk I could know the mind of another on this forum. We don’t need no stink8n’ literal interpretations, right? No matter....intended joke or not...it was not funny. And......I know of much worse that has been done to valuable vintage instruments and amps that destroyed their value. So....I took it literally and responded in a manner to perhaps prevent someone from screwing up a guitar in a similar manner.... a ‘54 Les Paul goldtop with the finish removed to be replaced by brushed on varnish....a Dec 1954 Strat refinished.
    Glad to be here......needing a GOOD laugh. Anyone know any real jokes??

    you got it right wally, thats how i feel about the guitar, if my posts liven things up a bit then thats a good thing too!
    and your right it would be better for me to sell it if i didnt like the looks of it.
    it reminds me though of a guitarists connection with their instrument, my friends pal has a 57 mary kay strat with a flamed neck, i told my buddy to call him to see if i could buy it. the guy had sanded the body and repainted it! my pal told him he really messed up the value of the guitar but the guy said he will never sell it anyway so who cares?
    stevie ray vaughn would touch up the edges of his strat with car model paint (at least thats what i read)
    i have a 64 strat i love it has nice even wear and nicks here and there, but it has one big nasty scratch behind the bridge that bothers me, if i had a good luthier touch that up at the end of the day how much value would be lost? a 64 is only worth what 10 to 12k? would it be worth 9k? i think so but it doesnt matter because i wont sell it anyway.
    i hope folks can find some humour in my statements and allow me my unorthodox views on things. all of the political guitar correctness doesnt always apply to some people.
    people can and do pay money for beat up guitars, have you seen john mayers 'the black one' ? thats one ugly guitar and its not even an old one! and 22k??? whoopie!!!
    wally good to know you came out of the hospital OK those places scare me to no end, ive had to go a couple times myself. i eat a lot of apples, some stores have reliced ones

    Crazy to think back in 1962 the amp was equivalent to $3,700 and the guitar was nearly $2,000! That's an expensive set up right there.

    That is a very nice pre-CBS Tele. The color is great!

    when I post my responsive gag re-relex to that color I meant no offence to anybody I know that it's very popular color here.
    my favorite color is matte flat black. It's been my favorite color since I was nine or ten years of , how many kid like flat black at that age? when I look back on it it is weird.
    Fenders metallic red and hot rod red speak to me but, it still isn't matte flat black .:(

    I'm quite familiar with that guitar and it's a good one. Sure wish I could have played it through that amp though.
