Looks like an interesting player. I'll be intrigued to see how the bidding goes; often people are afraid of repaired necks. As such it could be a great deal for soembody.

:lol: definitely an interesting mod. looks like they replaced the saddle section of the bridge with some hi-mass plastic...

good news though. that bridge/tail assembly is a exact duplicate of the Rick 400X series. so any replacement will directly fit (use the Electra screws though as they are shortened to account for the Module cavity, etc...)

hipshot makes a nice replacement bridge for those as well that you can actually adjust way easier.....

Uggggghhh

It looks like they grafted a ping pong paddle on the top of the neck.

That kind of abortion should be "outlawed" lol

Is that metal hunk a deadbolt striker plate?

Thanks. I just won it so I will see how it goes. With luck it will just need saddles. It sure is ugly though :D

That's exactly what I thought. That may be the funniest guitar repair I've ever seen. Very punk rock. You kind of have to love it.
