He just needs another one.
I find it hilarious that the rebellion of Grunge can be musealized like that. I guess people stare at it, thinking “Those were the days *sigh*”. I never understood the whole guitar smashing thing. Especially since it’s not easy to damage a Fender guitar in a way like Kurt.
That museum has always felt far too clean for rock.

Why it took off in the way it did I couldn't tell you, probably it fit well in people's minds with the violent, rebellious nature of rock, but Pete Townsend who's I think widely regarded as the first guitar smasher claims to have been inspired by auto-destructive art, this avant garde-trend in the 50's and 60's where the destruction of something was regarded as an artistic happening. That kind of thing was in the air back then.

And if you've just managed to knock the headstock off your Rickenbacker by mistake you might as well play into something like that and go all out :D

If Musicmasters count, that Musicmaster paint job that YouTube's algorithm keeps pushing on me should fall under this category. That burst and rout, yikes.

This was a 1958 Gretsch Double Anniversary. No doubt the Harley-owning fuckstain who did this has also ruined countless old cars in the same manner.

Oh, and it's on Reverb so of course the price is utterly fucking ridiculous.

I always had a soft spot for this ridiculousness of all that rockabilly kitsch. I would rock it pretty hard.

I know that this poor guitar will find admirers, but that there's some sloppy mod work.

You really have to try to make something that looks like you didn't try at all...

That said: look for a cleaner "alternate reality" version at the Fender booth for the next Namm (with a tune-o-matic, natch and a Gretsch pickup instead of the John Hall will sue single coil)
