What The Duck Bass Guitar Update
The Guitar is in recovery now- As you can see, the front of the headstock sustained the most splintering- but overall- I'm pleased with how it's turning out!
My next step is to let the stain cure 12 hours; then I'll buff it down, spray a clear coat over it, buff, and repeat till it looks like new- or at least as close as I can get!
( I used to do Guitar repairs for a music store called the "Pied Piper long ago- and this really brought back a lot of memories! Fun stuff...)

WTD Bass Guitar
Check him out at http://www.whattheduck.net/ and buy something- he needs the money for a new bass!
As some of you know, Aaron is also in a band called "Sweet Jelly" , and during a gig, his Bass took a dive and broke the headstock off. I am attempting to :
A) repair the guitar to playablility.
B) If it isn't reapirable to play; at least have a place for guitar hooks to hold it on the wall of my office!
Here is a photo of the damage:

"What The Duck" Ibanez Bass Guitar Winner
If you're a photographer and haven't seen the "What The Duck" online comic strip; Where have you been!
That being said- The artist and creator , Aaron Johnson is also a musician with the band called Sweet Jelly - He recently put his old bass on ebay and said that if a WTD fan won the bass, he'd sign and put a WTD sketch on it as an "incentive" to bid for it.
I won the bid for the Bass- and after being emailed by Aaron with the preliminary idea for what he wants to put on the bass- All I can say is I CAN"T WAIT TO GET IT!
Awsome! Thanks Aaron!
