Real talk, every time I see this headstock I have to do a double take before I remember we're in the bad timeline with Nickelback and Chicago


The band, the city, the musical named after the city, the movie based on the musical named after the city, or the original Motion Picture Soundtrack from the movie based on the musical named after the city?

The band. The city's pretty chill and gave us early Fall Out Boy and a bunch of other cool new-punk acts, I'm pretty ambivalent on the musical, and the movie and associated soundtrack were alright in my book.

I remember those 12-strings, especially on the d-necks.
I couldn't tune standing up, probably not even on the 8-string. My short arms couldn't reach that far!

Not gonna lie...I don't play 8-strings, and I'm not normally a fan of angled pointy headstocks...but boy-howdy, does that look the business, or what? That's mean as heck. If Batman or Venom played a guitar...
