Gibson Les Paul Standard "Burst" 1960 (Serial #07615)

$285,000.00


HIDEOUS.

That's worth it if it's got two and a half baths and a walk-in closet, provided that the neighborhood is nice and in a good school district.

Before you ask, yes those are alien-head inlays.


I'd play the shit out of that guitar in an ancient Near East-themed psych-metal band.

If you want the awkward looks of a Ritter bass, but don't want the high quality or high price, look no further:

Okay, I've seen that pedal here and was curious about it but forgot to look it up. What exactly is going on with it? It sounds like a really fast wah wah or something. I know nothing about effect pedals.

Don't know if this is an awesome guitar or an awful one. It doesn't look like it's going to sound very well, but... it's kind of cool? Kind of? Maybe?

Tough call there. Could be awesome, could be awful.
I guess context is key.

The bridge looks like it's completely in the wrong place. Look at how the pickups are crammed together, but it's only a 21 fret neck. The 12th fret is supposed to be at the midway point on the string and it's nowhere near. The intonation appears to be so far out that you'd hit an octave at around the tenth fret. Completely unplayable in other words.

Well, maybe you can use it for some Derek Bailey/augmented technique shit. You'll be the cutest avant-garde guitarist around.

You could also pull the frets, fill in the slots, sand it with a radius block, oil it, and call it a fretless. or do the same and cut new slots for correctly-positioned frets, I suppose.

Or throw it to the river and get rid of the more than sure kawaii curse that follows that guitar. It's like an anime Robert Johnson devil curse.

Do that, and there's sure to be a live cat with glowing pink eyes sitting on your fencepost when you get home. Then soon enough, you're all dying in a mysterious accident and the guitar turns up in a pawn shop somewhere, good as new.
