How? Why? What? How is it even possible to achive such an utterly massive amount of fail?

Is it epoxy or hot glue?

I like the fact that they made such a fucking mess of the bridge, but took the time to paint one of the bridge pins black to match the others. It's the little details that really make or break a guitar.

Has a minor crack at the neck pocket - now I wonder where that would come from? How does that thing even hold the neck anymore?

On the other hand, it’s a perfect example for the versatility of Fender guitars: they can even be turned into Gibsons and remain playable 😉

It actually looks kinda nice - I wonder if the body was made from scratch, or if there's a bunch of bondo in there.

The neck seems to be sitting on top of the body instead of in a pocket, though?

And as the post-Strat above shows, they can apparently also be turned into each other.

That seller must be out of their minds, so so many things wrong with this. Why is the body reshaped and nubby? What's with the wonky bridge install? Is it just me or does the headstock look damp/mouldy or something?

The neck would be beautiful after a thorough cleaning!
