As of today I have negative talent, one guitar, and one bass. It’s amazing what you get for your money these days in the low-end stuff. The Squier Affinity Telecaster HH was $180 new and the Squire Vintage Modified Jaguar Special bass was $250 used.
(The black box back there is a musician’s PA with a high-Z input, so that’s my amp. Not as cool as a real Fender amp but it’s adequate.)
Control plates and pickguards have tons of laser possibilities! I want the Telecaster pickguard to be a ska checkerboard. I need to vectorize that shape.
