My Bloody Valentine.

They had/have a Fiesta Red Jaguar with matching headstock (tort guard though, I think).
You think you can't, you wish you could, I know you can, I wish you would. Slip inside this house as you pass by.

Sir, can I have your OSG card? You are officially on probation. ;)


That said, WONDERFUL COLOR CHOICE. I saw the pix on Dano's Fbook page. I wondered who made the red on red choice. :-* :-*

Smashing Pumpkins are my favorite all time band, that being said I know Billy was very influenced by Kevin Shields... So what's a good album to start with?
Ps the red on red was a last minute decision it was going to be sunburst until I saw a fiesta strat that Dano did, then I became obsessed and made a quick last minute decision...
Lastly my offset love is from the 60s not 90s

Loveless. Start there. Put on some headphones, relax and fade away...



And get blown away by a wall of f@$ king sound!

That turned out amazing man! I'm usually not keen on red guitars, but that turned out great!

All the screw holes line up except for this one....what's the deal with that!?
I actually have the 59' tort that ligns up with that hole. '

Apparently a batch of the 59's had this issue.

I'm not sure if I'm digging the pickguard, I think it might need to be brown tort or mint....
