some will disagree, some will say there are worse, but how many will say they love it??

don't know why the Basslab pics came over all funny. They're strange enough without gremlins getting in the way...

Hi guys,

This sucker makes the bowling ball/marble look like a Da Vinci.

Sorry I was so quick to nominate the bowling ball/marble strat.

Believe it or not they call this a "splatter strat".

Has Fender stopped making guitars?

I believe the method for painting them was to leave em out on the beach for few hours.. throw some hot chips on em and let the seagulls do the rest. :)

In defence of fender but... http://www.fendereurope.com/news/images/10_cs_strats-2.jpg

Edit: 1bl pics came out looking weird because they have a white border... made for a white background.

I thought the "spatter" had a clear pickguard but obviously not, as there is no rear rout apart from the trem. While searching for something else, I found out these are aluminium hollow-bodies.

I did have a copy of Fender Frontline mag and, inside, was a pic of a Custom Shop "Disneyland" Strat to celebrate some anniversary of the place. Wood-bodied, but still as gaudy and tasteless as the themepark itself:

Please 1bL,

Isn't it hard enough being an American these days without throwing this in our face. I'm so ashamed, my only hope is that no one bought it. SB

Well done Mike, you have found it!! this for me says it all, take a look at the one with the 3D relief guns on it, it just says it all, can you imagine the sales pitch? and the discussion with the Fender Custom Shop boys? snigger snigger, and it just goes to show, money talks, nobody stood up in the custom shop and said 'NO, this is going too far!! ' this gets my No1 vote :lol:

The gun one is bad Lee.. but it's no bowling ball :) I don't mind the far upper right.

flowers for added touch

Let the talking Brian Wilson watch over you.. there's just something Chucky about it.

Outstanding, Michael! That's the coolest (strangest) P-Bass that I've ever seen. Can you provide us with a brief history of the instrument?
