Yonkers - that rhymes with "Bonkers" yes?

I wonder if the typewriter in the photo has MIDI?
Yes the cat has opposing thumbs and extra digits.

That first pic (the jag-caster double-neck horror) should be in the "Most trashed offsets" thread too.

VERY cool!  Wonder where that white one is today?

Yikes.  Make that in a sparkle finish and I'll move a kidney!

What?  I'm talking about that Jaguar... It is 100% offset, even with half a Telecaster stuck on top of it!

If I'm not mistaken, that white double neck is a contemporary custom-made guitar.. Buddy Dughi is still very much active.

It doesn't have a top waist to be offset to

:o

Ohh man...... ok, this is my last post on this subject, because it's becoming ridiculously geeky..

Final arguments:

              1 - 3/4's of that guy's double neck is a Jaguar... Even butchered and without a top end, it's still an offset.

              2 - It does have a top waist, as shown by the crude red arrow on this next pic:

Image

              3 - Finally, as this next pictures proves, this all adds up and makes this offset, one of the most offset offsets I've seen!  ;)
