    Well last week I walked into a thrift store when I spotted one of THESE.

    Which was priced at 25 Euros and I went, that HAS to be a mistake, C.Giant guitars aren't expensive but they sure couldn't be THAT cheap. So I went in, asked about the price and they told me "You can read the tag, can't you?"

    I took it home, plugged it in and it worked, only the neck pickup had no sound but hey you can't fault a 25 Euro guitar for something like that, can you? It's all okay figuring that I was going to take it apart and use the parts to create something else.

    This is my band "Rote Sau" (German for Red Pig) I'm the one holding the pink Washburn with the message. We are a punk band who also dabble in rockabilly.

    These are my themed guitars, the one on the left says "Swine life" on the back.

    But because we also do some rockabilly songs, I decided that I should add a more traditional strat style to my arsenal, or should I say, my sty.

    So I decided to put my 25 Euro monster back together but not before giving it a make over.

    As you can see, I still need to put the output back on, I also will put in a Dimarzio FS-1 in the bridge position to give this pig some grunt, I strung it up to see if the neck needs any work to make it playable but so far there's no issue, it plays just fine.

    pig4.jpg The paintjob isn't very neat, I just rattle canned it on, I bought this shade of blue because had exactly this in mind, I love the juxtaposition of the words "Red Pig" on a blue guitar. When my mother saw the guitar, she said "Awww, what a cute little piggy you drew but shouldn't you have painted that guitar red if your band is called Red Pig?"
