I really want to save these but this one would demand more love than I can give. WTF is up with the neck humbucker routing? Why have they opened between the rout and the neck pocket? Holy mashed potatoes what have they done with the neck pocket?! What have they done with the neck screw holes?!

And what are the two extra holes that were almost but not quite drilled (I'm using the term loosely here) through meant to do?

Yes, it goes like this: I was bought by arseholes who mangled me almost beyond recovery. I suppose it could still be fixed but it would be too much for me.

Firewood.... :chainsaw

The fact that you can't give away a PC in good condition absolutely rules out the need to try and save this thing.

The neck hum route was changed for the single coil.

As for the rest, I'm puzzled too... it does look like it was actually in a fire, at least the neck pocket does.

Too bad. I looked long and hard for mine, and I'm sure 98% of the Kramerites would say I way overpaid for it.

Nice project if it was free (baretta conversion?). Really isn't worth anything as it is.
