    I'd love/hate to see under the pickguard.

    Thinking out loud here: That's a JP neck, and somebody sourced a JP bridge, but are those Fender saddles? And looking at the rear photo, somebody butchered the neck heel, tried to inset the neck plate (badly), and the cavity for the piezo/mag toggle. WHY?? Is looks like it could be a JP body but why on earth do that do it? The routing under the pickguard must be awful!

    Come on, guys - to one person on the planet, that was the most beautiful guitar in existence - at least for a while!

    I started a thread about something very similar a while back: What happened to that poor Silo?
    Same seller, but it was advertised as a Silhouette. Looked very similar though, so I hope it's the same guitar modified further to be more JP-like and they didn't ruin another one.

    Interesting mutation.

    Why all the hate? Was it your guitar? Like Kevin said... you don't have to like it or buy it...

    Just hope it doesn't breed....
    Enjoy Your Balls!!!

    Well, that's definitely not an original piezo-equipped JP6 body.

    I'm all about modifying guitars to better fit the end user but this one really leaves me wondering what they were trying to accomplish.
