Thx Unc, hope you and yours had an excellent Christmas! Yep, well I personally make very few to sell and normally just pull quick proof-of-concept gits off, write a song or three on it and sometimes take 'em out on tour doing shows. When I make them for myself like that I often give them away to folks who visit, and I meet a lot of people like that so eventually they go out the door and perhaps somebody gets the bug like so many of us have re. playing and maybe building -that often happens. So those are just quick and I actually like 'em beat up. Almost ashamed to say, but after a lifetime of recording and tours, etc., most of my "store bought" gits are gifts... and I have some 26 of 'em, Les Pauls, Strats, 4 diff. brilliant luthiers who are friends who made me amazing electric and electric/acoustic instruments. If I want pristine I have it, but truth is there's something about rough, simple, even rubbish that you can sing against which makes me smile!

I take my random orbital sander and sand off the labels I don't like and the bar codes.  Kind of funky fun to leave it on like you did.
