Imagine getting your prized series instrument back from customs and finding they decided to cut it open to see if there was anything in the cavity......ooops.

Like: "Sorry, we thought your bass was too heavy", creepie...

Talking about a heavy weighted bodie: 19Kg is almost 42lbs, on a Strat!

"Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds
I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down
I went right home and I went to bed I stuck that lovin' 44 beneath my head

Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun took a shot of cocaine and away I run
Made a good run but I run too slow they overtook me down in Juarez Mexico . . ."

Couldn't resist. Seems like the appropriate song to play on this instrument.

Man this Guitar is the inspiration for Scratch and Sniff, I mean I could just see someone playing it on stage and during a lick he reaches down by the volume and gives a little scratch with his Pinky Nail and then the hand moves up to his head!, on the other hand it would be safe to take our Alembics through the Airport anymore fore fear that they may get sawed open for a suspicious substance,
time to find gigs within Driving distance only guys!
