CRAZY ME. NGD Dirty Laundry Modded Baretta!

Post by SWANTECH » Mon Nov 22, 2021 3:07 pm

Yup! I am the all day sucker. I couldn't resist. Made a silly offer. Seller counter offered at $550.00. I am not exactly liking this purchase. BUT! This may be a good buy at this price even with the modifications. Unknown if it has a case. I didn't ask, didn't want to poke a nerve. I guess I will see when it arrives. It wasn't listed with one so I am not really expecting one.

So I guess I have to get the bleach out. We will see what this is really like when it arrives. The seller pic's are not great. This will be a future flip. I am not sure if I will completely restore it, or just make it less messed up and flip it. It really depends on the condition and how well the Mod's were done. Did a pro do the routing or is it an EVH/ANGRY BEAVER route? I don't know.

Worst case scenario Gc will probably give me $2k for it. LOL.
I could also part it out and maybe make a few bucks? The Floyd Rose, Tuner's, Neck, Neck plate, and EMG's are sellable.

But let's face it, someone buys a Kramer b/c it has a Floyd.

If you wind up parting it out, then I'd love to trade something (or somethings) for that black neck plate.
I need something with the wider Fender spacing and hoping not to resort to an old Focus plate.
Stop!!. ...wait a minute!

a few other sweet ones!!
some lumies & Spectors

A block of wood and some nice quilted or tiger maple vernier would be a possible way to make that thing a keeper, assuming the neck feels great and has life worth living. Plug that neck pup hole and refinish as desired! For $550 you got some wiggle room as long as the rest of the hardware is solid If not, upland that to pieces and take the profit to something you can enjoy.

That's the kind of deal I'd like to snag to pull the guts out of my JTV-89F variax to transplant into. That's the beauty in some of these bastardized semi hack jobs if they can be snagged for a decent price. They can become that custom 1 off for you that no one wants to attempt with an all stock, maybe dinged up, but otherwise case queen. It's already kinda effed up. So go nuts! Make that 5150 replica or some rando design that has floated in the back of your head. I'd love to make one of my Deluxes an HSH config. I have access to a CNC router to make it a solid mod, but just can't do it (yet). More likely to happen to a Foci 3000.
If your Guitar goes to 12, your amp only needs to go to 9.

"Worst case scenario Gc will probably give me $2k for it. LOL."

No, GC will give you $200 for it and list it for $2k.

That being said, you got a good deal if the neck is good/fair. You're absolutely right that parts alone will more than cover expenses.
I'd fill the neck pup and refin it.

Good buy
