needs more than TLC, needs a full corinary bypass.

shame about the hole, if it wasn't so brutally wrecked i'd buy it and do my usual trick on it.

What do you want to do tomorrow?

Yeah, apart from the hack job it looks pretty good.  Not sure what these are worth restored though, and I dont have any spare cash.

have another bash at it!  other than the shyte pickup install it does look quite good.  you could make a nice black scratchplate to go on it for about $15-20.

ive got a paddy N4 body and an N6 body on my desk today!  Im trying to design a cool scratchplate for the N6.

These N5/N6 bodies are featherweight, even compared to my swamp ash.

I need to complete my weekly timesheets, which ive forgotten about since february so I may be busy today.

I sort of wish I'd bought this as I like projects and I could have afforded it but I talked myself out of it as I'd spent a lot on guitars in the recent months. I'd had a long break from playing and on my return had a bit of a gear splurge before this appeared.

I've had my current EC29 since about 1991 and it's in excellent condition except the Reflex circuitry failed and I replaced the pickups with some fairly cheap Kent Armstrongs.

A second one would be nice. I don't ever use the higher frets, which kind of makes wanting another EC irrational but I just find mine so nice to play.

It's back...

...perhaps the sale fell through. Not sure I need another project and it's a fair chunk of cash but I'll keep an eye on it.

Yup, it's the same seller, but he's put it up for more money again!!!

crazy, if it won't sell at a price, it's clearly not worth that amount!!!
