Got a press release today from a publicist hawking a company called, “Silver Luthier.” These guys specialize in solid sterling silver bling to put on your guitar. Check out that solid silver flame tailpiece to the left. That’s freakin’ cool. It’ll also set you back $1200. Ouch. Or, not satisfied with your Les Paul’s Rhythm/Treble toggle switch cover? You can get a solid silver flame cover for only $180. Look, I don’t want to knock these guys. This stuff is seriously cool, though I know it’s definitely not for me.
Besides, I have enough to worry about over my playing than to worry about how I look while I’m playing. 🙂 But more power to those who can accessorize their guitars with this stuff.
