    He's been watching old Argent videos... Russ Ballard did that to his Strat.

    I shouldn't like that as much as I do. One of those awful-things-you-can't-stop-looking-at for me.

    For me it's no worse than some of John Mayall's guitars.

    Man, I had a number of shirts similar that back in the day. I'm here to tell you the only way to get stage sweat smell out of that old polyester was to light it on fire. Looked cool though.

    I want to compliment whoever did it on the quality of design and execution. While I know it's not to everyone's taste, they've clearly put a lot of time and thought into this. Had they just made some random holes in a Strat body, I'd probably be pretty dismissive, but the way they've chosen the diameter and location of each hole – as well as the clean lines they've achieved – tells me this wasn't just a bored whim. It's going to be a bit of a swine to spray and rub down, but I'm sure they already know that. :D

    C'mon people! It's not as if the man has loaded a 1962 Strat with two Dimarzio Super Distortions and a Kahler... and I saw enough of that kind of whizz back in the day.

    If this gets a uniform finish it would actually look very good.

    This is why the package insert says, "do not operate power tools while taking this medication".
