    Proof, if any was needed, that bass players really are a dull bunch of blokes.

    Well, it looks like Eastwood is already going to try this one again. Personally, I would prefer they didn't, and don't see how it would do any better than the first outing, but it's up to them, so we'll see if it can find at least a dozen buyers for it over the next six weeks. This time, it will only be offered in red/cream and blue/cream. Apparently they have dropped the black/mint version.

    I like the blue one the bottom. Incredible looking guitar. They all stand out. Wonder how they would play. Awesome concept.

    The most 'popular' guitar I've ever designed sold, maybe, 150 units, followed by the second most 'popular' at about 90. I do it because I can, but there's surprisingly little money in it.

    I feel it's still worth doing, because what the hell, a guys gotta do something.
