    Yeah that’s ruined

    And it has a veneer on the top

    I’d rather have a new tele custom than a mangled “original”

    And I can’t stand All-Parts

    I don’t like the fake custom shop stuff on it either, I’m one of those people that don’t mind a logo on a licensed neck but putting custom shop is too far

    The word "upgraded" seems to have changed its meaning.

    But.... you have the assurance of the "Sold As-Is....No Returns".
    Well, that's good if you're the seller! ;)

    So it's a partscaster with maybe some vintage hardware? There's nothing to show the body is or rather was a 66'.

    Since it's already totally non-original, I could change the pickups for my preferred Bootstrap Pretzels, the bridge for a Wilkinson "left-handed" one (so the pickup slant is opposite standard), the saddles for Bensonite Fat Saddles, and probably the neck for a Warmoth conversion scale neck, Fatback and 1 11/16" width at nut. Then, I'd basically have my #1, which is "perfection" for me. ;););)

    "However, if an unforeseen issue arises, you are always covered by the eBay Buyer Protection Plan,"

    I didn't know Reverb honors Ebay's Protection Plan. Do I need to read more fine print?

    for that kind of cash it should at least look good. There's a bunch of us here who could make a more believable "vintage custom"

    Geez, I have 3 guitars that are made entirely of "upgrades". Any of them can be had for $2500 ea. & you save a grand. :lol:
