    They'd better be an unbelievable guitar player to rock that in public.

    To me a Falcon ,black or white, needs nothing.:rolleyes:

    LoL! I'd buy Bootsy's guitar in a heartbeat over that poor bird.

    Sure it’s not for everyone (myself included), but I bet if Brian Sezter had a guitar painted like this some people would probably be falling all over themselves to get it.

    The good news is he bought a Falcon. The bad news is he thought he was going to be a star.

    I dig the case. The guitar kind of reminds me of something but I can’t quite put my finger on it.....

    I hate to pile on.
    My first thought when I saw the pic was that it reminded me of the glow-in-the-dark stars you stick onto the ceiling of a child's room.
    Immature and even somewhat feminine.
    Kinda like pants that have "I'm A Star" embroidered across the seat.

    We're more of a Devil's Head, Lady Luck, Hot Rod, Girly Pinup kind of crowd. No thanks to the stars.

    I’m a no Mod guy. I’m trying to get it though. A bird, f-holes & stars. No way... No how! I wouldn’t do it. Having said that “those stars have to make it sound and play better” right?

    Wow that brings back memories. “Glow in the dark stars on the ceiling”. My ex put the on our daughter’s ceiling when she was 4. I wouldn’t have done that to the ceiling either!

    CW,

    Starry Starry Night.

    Two problems with this guitar:

    First, depending on how long the decals have been on, the guitar finish may have yellowed slightly, which will leave ''star ghosts'' at each spot where a decal was positioned.

    Secondly...dealing with Reverb.

    Just me...I'll pass.

    Merc,

    Ghosts left behind, due to the finish yellowing.

    That’s my point. It’s likely not so easy despite what that seller says. If it were easy than remove it.

    It’s sort of like guitar pedals. I’ve posted some for sale that didn’t move. Once I removed the Velcro and any residue easily with Goo Gone, they’ve typically sell within a few days. If it’s easy, than do it. If it’s not, than don’t claim it cones off easy and price accordingly. Sellers like that Falcon I don’t get.

    Stars are cool, including on tats. Just not crazy about it on a Falcon.

    Btw, I dig the G brand amongst the stars.
