11 on 11/11/11: #11 - The Dead Rock Stars Fender Stratocaster

OK, it's the 11th November 2011, that is 11/11/11, and as such today has been designated Nigel Tufnel Day. To celebrate this day of Maximum Elevenness, we here at Guitarz - for this day only - will be posting an unprecedented ELEVEN blog posts! And now, here it is, our ELEVENTH post on 11/11/11:

Do I need to say much about this Mexican-made Fender Stratocaster as refinished by Beyond Custom Guitars? The "newspaper" finish is quite striking, but if you read the headlines and the stories themselves most of them are about the deaths of famous rock stars: John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Bon Scott, Sid Vicious, Dimebag Darrell, Kurt Cobain, etc.

Cool or tasteless? You decide.

We hope you have all enjoyed our mammoth 11 guitar blog postings today on Nigel Tufnel Day. I just want to end on a more serious note and point out that in the United Kingdom the 11th day of the 11th month is Remembrance Day when we remember those who died in the two World Wars and that absolutely no disrespect is meant in our blog posts today.
