It's definitely got the "unique" category covered.

I predict that in the near future you will see that same paint scheme on a National Resophonic guitar with a price tag of around $3500.00

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-05-06 AT 03:47 AM (EST)]"A hand crafted 100 percent Nimbin original "

No surprises there.
It's funny - I know plenty of people who've been to Numbin but they're never sure how long they stayed for. I've taken part in genuine conversations along the lines of:

"Wow, that was a fun week in Nimbin"
"Mate, you were away for a month"
"Oh..."

Your right Jellyroll.
I used to live a short drive from Nimbin.(Ballina)
Mull capital of the world.
Its like another dimension, time travels on a different loop than the rest of the world.
Like something from a Stephen Hawking book.
An amazing place, worth a visit.
(They'll think anyone's a nark until they know you real well though).

@ 100 bucks a seed I'm sure he can afford his own defence lawyers!
