I think you did it, you found the most offensive guitar. The gall this motherfucker has to list this beat to shit stupid ass ugly as hell hack job for more than like, $200, is infuriating. Reminds me of my friend’s crazy sister who attempted to sell her $150 brand new peavey bass on Craigslist, listing it for $2,000 and the 15w digital combo amp she had for like $1,500. Where did you get those prices? She ended up falling for the money order scam, TWICE! And this is after my friend, her brother, did the same with a H&K combo amp while refusing to listen to me that the CL confirmation email specifically tells you about this scam, but because he deposited the check and it showed up in his account, refused to listen to me, even after I explained to him that within a week the bank would deduct it and charge him money for bouncing a check. I rode with him to wal mart to do the money gram and everything, begging him to not do this, only to have him bitch at me like I’m a piece of shit for messing up a sale. Most maddening shit. People are fuckin dumb

In olden times, folks would just post "best offer" or "$9999999999" as a price when they had no idea.

I just noticed that corrosion and time has turned this toggle into a witchcraft switch.

As much as I hate to say it, I actually kind of like this one. It’s a little Teisco-y.

In rare instances, painting a bolt-on neck a solid color is the right move.

Seller claims it belonged to a guitarist in Dutch Indo-Rock band The Black Arrows.
I wonder how it was wired.

That German seller must feature in this thread more than anyone else. He's got an appalling reputation and seems to specialise in selling things that are almost fit for the bin, at buy it now prices significantly more than the thing would be in mint condition. A total internet time burglar, cos every time you see his listings you can't stop but sit there with your mouth agape! ;D

As for that er...1973 mustang neck that'd be what, 200 dollars in decent shape?, has the mutilator cut into the area of the first fret? Looks very iffy
