    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...

    Nice routing job. Chainsaw? Or blind man with a jack hammer? :eyebrow:

    good thing its only a Fender

  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. ***???
  17. Buy it, keep the pickups, and sell the neck and hardware on eBay.
