    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Oh, Jay.

    The wanderings of your mind are.... well, words fail me.

    I bet it gets some interesting reverb off of the "body".

    I never thought I'd use the term "craptastic" in a positive light, but there, I just did.

    And Ryan, I'm planning to build a shovel guitar one of these days. I even have a shovel picked out. Just need to clear a few in-progress projects off my guitar workbench first. In one of my bands, I play slide guitar on a song called "Burn Down the Trailer Park", and the shovel guitar would be the perfect white trash compliment to that song.

    Looking forward to that one and make sure its good and rusty!

    It would make a nice partner to a fuel tank bass like Eaton the bass player from Split Lip Rayfield has. "Early on, the group's gimmick was Eaton's homemade one-string bass, named Stitchgiver, built from the gastank of a 1978 Mercury Grand Marquis and a piece of hickory and strung with one piece of Weedwhacker line." (and yeah the acoustics are pretty bad on it.. but its fun anyway).
