    Looks like a good candidate for a Steinberger tuning system retrofit.

  2. Or how about a coffeetable, to create an interesting dinner topic? :meh:

    How do you do things like that to a bass? I can't imagine how that could happen without anyone smashing it, or dropping it from the second floor.
     
  3. Right? I mean hell if the seller knows either....it also just happenned to be stripped for parts too. Not at ALL curious.

    no sir. can't imagine how the headstock popped off....musta been termites.

    maybe make a chopping block out of it... Alembic was selling series 1 shaped food chopping block a while back. I wonder if anyone has any of those.

    Considering for what it's going to go for money wise I think I would just get myself a nice Warmoth T-Bird body and have at my own Fenderbird that way, The neck pocket is already there and you can route it for whatever pup combo you would like. Just my opinion but aint those Elitest Set Neck jobs? Which would make for a tough project.
     
  15. Yep. Route out the body for a bolt on neck. Maybe add a Badass bridge and two darkstars. That would smoke.
     
  16. Not for my CNC it wouldn't. I'll hook ya up babe. :D
