    I know it's inconsequential but the electronics are not even original. The neck looks suspect too...

    Fender should sue this person...

    The seller would need to make me an offer to take that piece of firewood away.

    But.... 5 people have it in their cart, and it's predicted to sell soon.
    Maybe it's the line about the neck with back bow that makes it extra special.

    I visited CME this weekend and saw the guitar in person....had no desire to even take it down and play it. And, yes, it is as bad as it looks in the pics...

    I saw this pop up on my facebook ads a couple days back! I mean I imagine that no one foresaw the value these things would hold at the time, but come on....where's the taste!? This one hurts me..the audacity of the asking price too...tsk tsk

    Not gonna lie... I kinda like the way the surface looks now (the upper bout, however, is another story):

    Twenty five dollars and free shipping sounds about right. Might get some decent old hardware out of it...
