The "My Little Little Pony" decals on the horns are a curious choice of customization.... :roll:

The artist was given full artistic liberty within strict boundaries and unyielding guidance! (How's that for some good legalese?)

Actually, I wanted some magical kind of images and she delivered nicely. But there was a Generation Gap 101 moment when I commented on some Peter Maxx imagry and she did not know his name. Those damn kids!

And Dane, that little beauty has one of your fine wiring harnesses installed.

In addition to the headstock, put some colored sticky dots on the knobs. My 320 wore those for years in the 80's and 90's until the sticky dried out and fell off.

I like it too! As an additional benefit, if you decide to sell it, you can advertise it as RARE!!!. You know, just like every other Ric listing.
