I do remember rumours of this guitar too, come to think
of it, and the story of a worker being inspired to cop
that very model. I assume that must have been Klay. For
any who care,apparently Fender used '60's era wallpaper
with a paisley pattern then laminated the whole schmeel
to the wood to make the revered piece in question.
Matt's suggestion of a P90 equipped Les Paul would
definitly be a possibility - albeit a tad unorthodox...

You're not married, or else have a wonderfully
understanding and kind wife. I've got mine convinced
that it is possible to play 5 or 6 guitars at once,
hence the need to be constantly alert for that elusive
ultimate addition, but 16 -18!! Awesome.

I'm green,


PS. My favourite and manliest squeeze is a smoky old
blonde 335. ANd yes, I am bragging...   ;)

PPS Any of you OZ or American players ever heard of
Godin guitars?
