    I would run away from that deal. I bet it doesn't sound good at all.

    I don't think the original control plate is gonna help much after THAT routing.

    Pots: the LP 2-tone, 2-vol wiring? It may sound great, but it taint yer pappy's Tele.

    Tony, Pittsburgh is near Butler, right? You could check it out, but $1,150 is more than double what I think it's worth. Too modded.

    I think someone went too far on their quest for the ultimate tone!

    Maybe some of those knobs are psuedo faux knobs that are just for looks... ;)

    Why does the image of a female dog preparing to nurse her puppies keep popping into my head?

    Yikesky! That said, I wouldn't pay that for it, but if I happened across it for half that, I'd probably rock it. Might replace the body though!

    "Guitar dated by serial number (410982), not by removing neck."

    So, the guy doesn't mind lining knobs up like lemmings leaping off a cliff, but he doesn't want to unscrew the neck? Or is it a replaced neck plate?
