    Actually I like the carving they did on it. Granted they "killed a Ric", but they created something that could be equally cool. It has a nice \m/ quality to it. If the seller had feedback higher than 99%, and if the photos and description gave me confidence that it wasn't structurally effed up, I would totally buy it for the opening bid amount. I have no loyalty to the Holy Unmodified Ric. Give that thing a wicked finish job and some sweet components, and it would easily hang with the Jackson and ESP metal crowd.

    Unfortunately, the feedback, pics, and description do scream "meth abuse". Oh well.
