It's a player with bumps and bruises. The bad news, no modules, replaced pickups, a wonky #2 module bay, Missing plastic off of MPC levers. The good news, I have strong suspicions that the replacement pickups are early 80's Gibson Tim Shaw's, my favorite pickups. Can't wait till I pick it up Thursday!

Well I got it. Had some damage and completely boogered wiring so it's officially a project. Got a lot of the work done the last 2 days but the wiring will be an adventure. Still the seller was very fair after the fact and I think with some work I will have a great guitar when the dust settles.

the link didn't work for me, but nice to see you are fixing it up. My 930 is the slightly different Dickey Betts model. Don't forget, you can get the switches (or just replace the knobs) from radio shack. But you may have to order them (all our stores seem to be shut down). Pots (150K) are trickier to come by, as are replacement sockets, but still, can be done. Send me a private message and let me know what parts you need and maybe I can help.
