    at least it won't get beat up or worn out. the only "waste" will be when that guitar ends up with 2 shadows in the top behind where the stand legs come around after a few years.

    No more of a waste than all of those who buy them and put them under glass in their "collections." That's a honey though.

    That's cool that you posted the guitar. I was just there last month and thought the same thing. Very good roller coaster too!

    So what bandwagon/train are you following behind...

    Think for yourself.

    Who knows, there's probably some janitor that comes in every night with a little Pignose and just wails on the thing.

    Forget the Pignose, use the Blackface over to the left.

    Call me crazy but if they'd used an epi or something it'd kill the whole 'realism' for me.

    How about the U47's and U87's that were behind that glass 2 years ago? I'd love to get my hands on those too.
