A friend of the Cartoon Geeks needs our aid.

Jim Smith is one of the most amazing artists I have ever met in my life. He is truly a Renaissance man: not only a remarkable cartoonist and creator of animation but he is also a virtuoso rock n' roll guitarist.

A family emergency has forced him to sell a very special piece of animation history: the Fender Squier he used on the Ren & Stimpy opening and closing theme music. The guitar was later drawn on by both him and R&S creator John Kricfalusi. It's a good guitar, good tone, one of the Squier Strats made before Fender started cheaping out on the brand. However, it also is covered with Jim Smith and John K. art. You might want to not play this guitar if you buy it.

It's on eBay now. Go check it out.
