    "Good condition (look at pics carefully)"

    Cable management looks pretty solid, down to ACTUAL brass tacks?

    When I saw "heavily modified" in the thread title, I assumed it meant "butchered".

    I was not wrong.

    Sweet child of the most high! And I mean the other kind of high that comes with pharmaceuticals.


    My favorite part was "Good condition (look at pics carefully)". At least the back looks nice.

    I just have to wonder why someone would do that to a guitar. I mean for each his own but if you are gonna do that you need to plan on keeping it for a long long time.

    Hey now.......Its in "good condition" though, haha!

    The screws and tacks holding the wiring is my favorite part. I think even the staunchest relic defenders might agree this is just a bit much.

    Almost looks like it could all be covered up with one pickguard, though.
