Picked up a McCarty PRS today for a restring and setup. Imagine my surprise when I opened the case, and found that the flame maple top had been stripped, and the entire top covered in a sea foam green CRAYON. I mean, the owner used the whole crayon. It was just rubbed on in layers. When I was done working on the guitar, my entire bench was covered in little green waxy flakes. I should call it the Binney & Smith Special....

Can ANYONE see the picture? I can't seem to post a stinking pic here from my PC, or from PhotoBucket - it's just won't do it. What the blazes is going on with this place?

Let's see if the link works this way...

and if not... if the HULK were an instrument, this would be it.

Edit: Heh... looks like you figured out the link at the same time...

There's the test for shellac as miracle sealer. I wonder how many of the players shirts have a sea foam forearm.

Unbelievable! Especially for a PRS owner. Just the idea of touching that thing creeps me out. I suppose sea foam green sharpies are hard to come by though.

It's kind of cool but it still makes me want to smack the guy who did that to a perfectly good instrument!

Call me crazy but, I think it looks cool. Maybe a spray coat of shellac over it would preserve it.
