It should have been one of those when it was still a guitar.

You could use it to do a cover medley of Metallica’s One and John Williams The Immolation Scene from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, maybe round it out with The Imperial March for good measure.

Wow they've really gone all out there to ruin or lose every useful part...basically just looking at a set of pickups and metal control plates.

They could have made it fretless and had the fretboard covered in a ton of undefinable gunk for the Jaco tone...

Surely it's illegal to do this to a vintage instrument?
It's like knocking down a heritage listed house. Ha!

I have to admit I sort of like the rainbow fade neck, but...

the neck fade is great but that hippie crap, well it doesn't need it.

I think the answer to most of these “Why did you do this thing to me?”

Is drugs.

Or aliens.

But mostly it’s drugs.

It’s a Peavey - the headstocks can be spotted from miles away. I think they called it the Razor? Weirdo for sure

I’m intrigued by the third one. The birds are flying inverted. Maybe it was played lefty. Maybe it’s from an upside down universe.

I would rock it.

Not vintage, but utterly butchered Jag-stang.

Even leaving aside the... let's say "questionable" aesthetic choices, even ignoring the fact that the coloured in headstock was so half-arsed that they've missed a bit by the string tree:

What the hell happens to that nut? About 20% of it is missing. But undeterred, they've still strung it up with the low E dangling off the side of the neck. I suppose you can at least admire their optimism.

ok. so this reminds me of a band a girl i dated in high school was obsessed with. i think they were called something like atreyu. but she was always saying to me that they were good musicians because they played flashy looking guitars and she showed me one that had like fake blood splatter on it or something. kinda reminds me of that.

p.s. keep in mind at the time, this was my main bass. and even i thought it was garish
