I'm thinking about drilling a hole in the headstock of my cheap Epiphone to hold incense. Any ideas how this should be done? I'm thinking of just using a drill-bit dremel. I realize I can really mess it up but it's like I have an impulsive disorder or something. So please talk me out of it :[

that might be the stupidest reason for drilling a hole in your guitar i've ever heard.
incense? do you sweat a lot when you play or somethin?

Incense are pretty relaxing, weird how smells are most connected with memory in humans. My parents used to burn incense, the smell just reminds me of good times.

I do not use cannabis.

Nah, I'm not gonna do this.

Just put an incense holder on top of the amp if you really want it as part of your gear.

What do you mean HOW? Take your damn incense, find a drill bit the same size, drill a hole.

We burn incense. It's great. The ashes aren't actually hot, though, so no worries. And do you seriously have to ask how to drill a hole?


My thoughts exactly!

The questions people ask makes you wonder how cavemen ever figured out how to make useful tools from rocks.

if you actually end up doing it, you should probably drill the hole at like a 20 or 30 degree angle from the headstock. so it doesn't just stick straight out and look retarded. (more so?) the hole wont be that big so it shouldn't be too noticable if you run out of incense. its still gonna lower the resale value though

ashes are never hot. it's the glowing ember you need to be concerned with. i have a friend of mine who lit some incense and put it on his incense holder. he didnt put it in all the way and it fell out, apparently rolled off the desk and dropped to the floor. since incense is designed to burn until it is out it eventually lit up the carpet. he now has a monument to his stupidity that is about 20 inches across.

so i say go ahead and turn your headstock into an incense holder. the world needs more candidates for darwin awards.

Yes! I know exactly what you mean.. With me it's not incense but some sounds definitely bring on the feeling of nostalgia and good times.

I'm sure theres some way to rig a holder or something to the headstock. If worse comes to worse you can just tape them on! Haha.

A way that doesnt require a hole is use a cigarette filter. It fits nicely between a string and headstock just stick the wood end in the filter. You will still be dripping the ashes all over the place tho as it burned down.

hahaha
i bet you dont use cannabis lol
smoke a bowl full of hydro then light up that inscense and you'll be smellin some crazy s*** haha i would just use a drill bit and drill into the headstock i dont see wat the problem with that is

going to be sigged Jim!

and TS, do it to it. it won't **** up your guitar. put a piece of masking tape on the finish, so it's a little more resistant to becoming brittle, and start with the smallist drill bit possible, and work your way up. =]

i think a better idea : drill a hole through the epiphone logo in the head, and put the insense through there
