nah i wouldn't call it a bad egg at all. i got to play it yesterday, put in the missing sting thimbles (?), re-soldered the wire that had come loose of the bridge volume pot, etc. and it plays and sounds SO amazing!!! i'm willing to do what i have to do, but this one will be a keeper.ChrisFFTA wrote:That blows Pat but the odds were stacked against you!

oh and i decided NOT to clean it.
the neck is fantastic, so nicely worn in, with the comfty feel (and not the terrible usual tele-baseball-bat).
now all it needs is a decent nut and it's perfect.
