Yea, I did. That sucker is thrashed, and well, purple has to look good.

I only found it shopping for DCs because of that misspelling!

:lol: I look for common misspellings all the time.

People are nothing if not consistent that way.

Fortunately, "purple" isn't that difficult to spell.

Also, check this Basque/Spanish FZ-1S based fuzz:

I wonder if I could get a discount because my doctor is Basque? :)

I have no need for a chorus pedal, or one that's probably not very good, but it looks great.

Yeah, I've often wondered about those. You're probably right that they likely don't sound very good.

Speaking of pedals from bass amp companies, I still want an Aguilar Grape Phaser. :snax:

For bass I really love the Idiotbox Dark Wave. It's super rad.

Still gotta check out a Dark Wave. :snax:

Also, apparently, at some point this was Burgundy Mist:

That's a very, very odd fade (and I suspect refin given the new pickguard and everything else - especially the back of the neck!)

Yeah, that's what the seller is sayin' though. :whoa:

The price is also a bit on the high side given all that work (especially the changed pickups). :lol:

Changed pickups, wrecked electronics, incorrect serial plate, no way to prove any of it....

Custom pickguard, and the neck plate should be like so:

The only thing there I'd assume was late 60s or early 70s Fender was...the case.

FWIW, I like the finish on the guitar (obviously). :love:

It's more a $1K guitar though (if that), not a $4.5K guitar. :!!!: :whateva:

Oh, but check out this one, furtkamp:
