    This started life as a Squier model of some sort.
    I think it's very difficult to do convincing fake playing wear but I liked this as soon as I saw it. Yes, it's a bit OTT and actually looks as if it's been left out in the rain for months.
    When I got it, it was totally unplayable and needed all the working parts refurbishing including adding better tuners, a set of quite decent Artec alnico pickups, new controls and 10 gauge strings.

    Now it's my brother's main playing guitar; great looker with a really powerful sound.
