    Could be worse. Really could. Looks like a hotel room hack job to me.

    Yeah, if you're going to hack up your bass at least have the decency to put a nice GIANT pickguard on it to hide the extra routing, like they did with this '78 Stingray

    I didn't even want to try to salvage this one...

    good thing its only a Fender

    :bag:
     
  10. I'd only buy that for the electronics, That is certainly a bass to go "rock star" at the end of a show with, and destroy it on the stage.

    Did Wishy do the routing job? Yikes!!
    1-800-WARMOTH!!!! Less of a pain in the as* to get a new body for it than trying to fill, sand, etc that P.O.S.
     
  12. Oh look! A set of EMG PJ's for $92, and it comes with a free bass!

    The only way to save that would be to fit a MM pup at the bridge and rout out accordingly, would still be left with a bit of a hole from the idiot using a 5 string pup though. I mean seriously, how hard is a router to use? I could do a better job with a pair of nail scissors.

    Looks like a hammer, a screwdriver, and a bottle of Tequila got together.

    OTOH, if those are US emgs, they cost way more than the auction price.....
     
  16. Buy it, keep the pickups, and sell the neck and hardware on eBay.
