Never seen a set neck mistreated like this. Wow. :barf:

I don't know what that neck is from, but it isn't factory correct. It should have rectangular fret markers. Not a project that I would want.

They cut out the set neck and glued a new neck in! Gah! :eek2: Oh the horror.

Wow, that one didn't sell on the bay - looks like was ended early... but that one probably would have been one to steal the parts off of it and use to fix a somewhat less bass-turd-ized one. That is just awful :toopid:

I am normally against stripping out good guitar parts, but I can't ever see there being any value to that body with that neck glued to it. It is clearly a case of 1+1=.25!

Someone on the vintage Japanese Guitars Facebook page picked this one up. He was going for some of the parts on it for a project. Other people were vying for the neck and body from him.
