    I'd post Ruyter Suys, but management has been awfully cranky lately and it'd likely be misconstrued :p

    This one. I've seen Neil dragging it around the stage by the broken strings, dumping hot wax over it from a big candle, and whipping the pickups with the strings while stomping his Whizzer effects unit. Old Black just keeps coming back for more!

    As always, on the off chance not everyone is a boomer and/or has exactly the same musical heroes, I sure wish everyone would say who the pictures are.

    Other than being strung up the wrong way, there's nothing special about it...just the dude playing it.
