What a freaking mess, I wouldn't touch that for a tenth of his asking price. Firstly, mixing short and long scale parts (neck/body in this case) is a recipe for bad intonation, secondly the neck is being held on by only two screws. Some boy scout took his wood burning iron to the headstock for that faux maple flame look, probably did the same to the body. The bridge looks home made, with the original brass saddles (glued?) on the 'wood grain' bridge plate. The leather pickguard is butt ugly, and the final indignity is the tele bridge looking plate that the neck pickup is mounted to. This is definitely a guitar you would want to play before purchasing, and someone is being set up for a big disappointment I'd wager.

I missed the bid on the (admittedly overpriced) neck a while ago. I think it's the same neck from the Anniversary Phoenix that was broken up and sold for parts on eBay.

This guitar's a nightmare and it depresses me that someone made it.
