It doesn't matter what people do to their guitars, or how much they paid for it... Modding is a way of individualizing your guitar... meaning: making it perfect for YOU... So I quite like the guitar here, but I wouldn't buy it, because it's not the guitar for me... Nor should the seller expect to get much money for a probably very expensive and very "professionally destroyed" guitar... Expecting people to pay a large sum of money to have a guitar that was made to the exact specifications of somebody else, might be a case of megalomania, unless the seller is a really, really big star... Second hand, I'm always willing to pay at least half MORE for an untouched guitar, than for a modded one... Once, a seller asked me why, and I answered that I had to deduct the cost to get it back to a blank canvas. He didn't see why I thought his modifications were not the right ones for me, and I didn't buy it... I lost track of it after a few months, and a few price changes... The last price I saw for it whare barely higher than what I offered.
