    I guess some people just don't appreciated the understated elegance of the White Falcon, and feel the need to jazz it up with some additional visual stimulation! Different strokes for different folks...

    It has a certain charm to it. Pretty neat!

    Dali and Picasso on the back, some discarded plastic toilet paper wrap on the front... o_O

    I'd have been more into it myself if they stayed w/ the abstract/surrealist montage theme on the top too (& did the same full coverage treatment there as well).

    Just because you can doesn't mean that you should.

    I kinda like it, but a big part of that is because it ain’t mine. Still a White Falcon underneath, and that’s all that matters :D

    Why, Why, Why ? would you do that. I like the clean lines and look of a falcon.

    Art on the front and leave out the flowers. I don't think the Falcon headstock works with the dizzy makeover on the body. Could look good on a 5420.

    I used to dig Picasso
    I used to dig Picasso
    Hey now now, hey now now
    I used to dig Picasso

    Then the big tech giant came along
    And turned him into wallpaper
    Hey now now, hey now now
    I used to dig Picasso

    My favourite showering song!

    I never shower longer than one song. Sister Ray is among the favourite ones, too.

    Uh ... the back looks better than the top. Looks like those wax-coated table sheets my grandma used to use.

    Well some people try to pick up girls
    And get called assholes
    This never happened to Pablo Picasso
    He could walk down your street
    And girls could not resist his stare and
    So Pablo Picasso was never called an *******...
