    When I was power washing the sidewalk, I left grime in the shape of a Telecaster. It’ll never wash away. I messed up the headstock. I’m thinking of going out there with some really dark soil or something to fix it. 6FA6C639-1145-4BA8-BF52-0C4EAB034A04.jpeg

    You've got a pretty good hand with a pressure washer.

    You know the pressure’s too high when that’s all that’s left of the guitar.

    Dang! That’s awesome! Especially with a power washer

    I think I only counted 15 frets though ;)

    Power washer art!

    Power washing?! I take a far more delicate approach to cleaning my Les Paul:

    I've bought some used guitars that needed that.

    That was one of the most disturbing videos I've seen. A Les Paul snuff flick!
    At least it wasn't a Fender. Hell, maybe it will have a cleaner tone. Sparkling highs.

    With a nod to Jean Shepherd ala A Christmas Story, your kids can say "My old man worked in pressurized water the way other artists worked in oils and clay. It was his true medium and he was a master."

    I know if I was walking down the street and saw that, a smile would definitely be on my face.
