    Found this on e-bay...

    I got a kick out of the fact that the seller actually took close up shots of this. LOL!

    Don't try this at home, kids!

    After the sawed-off 5-to-4 string Squier conversion, I thought I'd seen everything.

    There sure are a lot of idjits on ebay.

    +1 LMAO!

    I'm still a little hazy... WHY would the seller feel he'd need to do that?...
     
  7. Wait, what? Did someone really cut off a slice of a 5-string neck to make it a 4?

    Worse. Just the headstock.

    The thread's round here somewhere, take a looksee, it's truly tragic.
