john deere bass

A few years ago, me and the (not quite yet then) wife were going through Hamilton, Montana when we saw this thing in the display window of the local music shop. We sort of laughed about it at the time and went on our way, but when we came back through town on the way home a week later we asked about it and ended up buying it.

 

It was a custom job done by the shop owner we bought it from; he'd been in a country-rock band with some friends a while back, and one of their "hits" was a song called John Deere. So dude put this thing together in secret and then sprung it on their bass player one gig when it was time to kick into that'n. Heh.
