Build your own USA Idol?
« on: September 08, 2010, 06:15:27 PM »
E-bay has had a number of unfinished Custom Shop Idol bodies & necks
lately.  Seems that the Custom Shop is liquidating its inventory.
Kind of a waste.

The prices aren't bad. If you've been looking to build your
own guitar, here's your chance.

Okay....I just noticed that the Pilsen body with neck is located
only 20 miles from me (no, I'm not the one selling it, nor do I know
who is).

For $275.00, I wish I had some guitar building skills.

There was a thread somewhere on the N4's where most of the parts for the Custom Shop guitars being sold were actually damaged in some way which is why they weren't used. May be worth keeping in mind and getting good images/seeing them before making a purchase. They may be perfect, but you never know.

Although, I'm damn tempted by the Pilson body with neck, etc...

Yeah, it looks really nice. I could go see it in person since it's close, but there are really many other things I should be spending $275.00 on right now....plus all it would take to finish it.
