    I was doing my usual search of ebay for new-ish listing of anything interesting and found this: http://search.ebay.com/150070768631

    The peghead looks completely wrong to me. Was there ever a peghead like this from the factory? Ugly anyhow... just curious if this is a franken-ray or ....

    "The headstock was modified at one time or another."

    Looks like the dropped it and sanded it down or something.
  3. Eww, that is just ugly. I doubt that they would make something like that in the factory, but I don't know.

    Ahh I missed that quote. My bad for scanning the posting instead of reading it through. And yes, I am retarded.

    Also, the guard appears to have a rout for a J pickup at the neck.

    Looks like there was a J bass pickup at the bottom of the neck too. Look at the pickguard. And that headstock is just horrible. Sad thing to do to a '78 Stingray. :(
