    Tom Fowler could've used an alteration like that on his bass back in the day to rest cigars in.

    Paint on some appropriate blood splatter and rock the frets off it!

    Sorry. Cast saddles make it a nonstarter for me.

    I think that may be taking the "Fender Super Bullets" strings concept perhaps just a little too far.

    I take care of 749 homes. You don't need to see too many to know what it looks like. They were oak though, so they don't tear out like alder.

    I've felled many a tree, and among arborists- alder trees are taken VERY seriously. They are prone to barber chair or even essentially EXPLODE. So, yea... alder wood isn't known to cut cleanly.

    The damage done was probably by a woman spurned.

    I'm goin' down to shoot my boyfriend's guitar

    'cause I I caught him messin' around town with another woman

    And that ain't too cool

    Anybody pull the trigger on this one?

    I’d go ballistic if a guy tried to sell me a guitar like that.

    I'll take a bullet on my truss rod, under protest, but not to the body wood.

    Pathetic and troubling, IMO. I don't need more reminders that there are cretins with handguns acting like imbeciles.

    Also, anyone who buys this totally needs to stain that exposed wood with fake blood.

    ...or real blood - you do you.

    That's what we do to Strats with 'buckers in the bridge position around our way.
