On a whim, I checked a local pawn shop today and there, hanging on the wall, was this this beat up, battered, rusty Focus 2000. Since it came with a dingy, smoky Kramer gig bag, I couldn't resist. Best part - it was all of $60!!! Time to start cleaning!

Nice score!! :thumbs

Interesting that the body was doweled and re-drilled like that at the neck pocket - what do you make of that?

Lemme know if you wanna flip that thing (to me) and make a little dough. I'm starting to get a little bored with HSS configurations recently, getting more interested in dual hums, and I always loves me a beat up cheap Focus!
