Hasn't this, or a similar Thunder with an SC replacement been around before? Is this a new trend that I should take note of ?

OMG!!

More like a load dropped on it!
Poor abused baby. Owner should be shot; lock and load Corsair!

Thanks for thinking of me Steve, but that bridge looks like the replacement I already bought (but still haven't installed Rolling Eyes)

Knew I should have checked here, before _I_ asked!

bounce

I guess if he has multiple people asking THAT question, instead of anything about his travesty, he may realise his mistake?

Westbone, did you make any 'attitude' towards his auction?

Do like the grain on that one. What pups did you use or did you find some mmk45's.

Notice on the one for sale the bridge pup is a neck pup, pole pieces are way out and upside down.

I got lucky on fleabay with some MMK45's. I managed to get one pair and an extra bridge p/up around the same time, I still have the extra one stashed for a rainy day! At the time I also fitted one of the last set of brass knobs from David over at Westone Spares.

Looks like the neck S/C is the wrong way round as well, the wires usually face the bridge. Might have something to do with which coil on the H/B the coil tap cuts out?

Wonder what happened to the original purchaser?

So, he originally got one bid for £100, but now it starts at £50 and has a BIN price of £200? Dream world, methinks? Would it get £200 if it was completely original?
