    Can’t get my head around this. Besides sloppily executed, wouldn’t this kill the guitar value?

    Motive? Chemically influenced action...

    My first though was 'smuggler" some folks just want to say they have one, or they are looking for a sound based on some one saying they used one on on such and such record.
    Although that is a sloppy job that is only remotely related to routing of the originals.

    That would actually be pretty decent if it plays well and sounds good , at a heavily reduced price. Only the player would know.

    Why? I have no idea (weight relief)

    Can’t say I haven’t had flashes of doing the same to my baja before coming to my senses

    I'd reckon that the structural integrity has just gone the way of the T-Rex....

    Back on another guitar site there was a thread titled, "OMG Why have you done this to me?" with similar disasters.

    It was enough to make a grown man cry.

    That's why you shouldn't do drugs.

    Still think it could/should be salvaged with a proper routing template and the right drill bit to even out the bottom and edges. Looks mint otherwise.

    I couldn’t live well know it that it looked like that under pickguard.
