Came across this strange pretend slithery thingy SNAKE! (sort of) -CAN Smiley-confused002
MIK?
Not sure what it is, but guessing late 80's?
A bit pricey methinks, even with an amp. CAD$399

Dimensions are pretty quirky. 2 coil tap switches, one for each pup...

That stacked "single-coil" when split can shriek sumpthin' awe-fully (good). Razz

Does not appear to be a finish from the custom shop though... Suspect

You're right, it doesn't appear to be factory. Any snakeskin from that time would've been real snakeskin, not a paintjob like that one appears to be.

But I'm still gassing for it. Laughing

You are correct sir. i looked into this one and it is indeed a paint job and not the real snakeskin.

Which is even better for me, I don't want actual skin. Too weird for me. Smile Not scared of snakes or anything, just don't want skin on my guitar. I'll use a leather strap no problem, though. Laughing

I called and tried to buy it, but they wouldn't ship it due to insurance issues. Sad
