Looks like an FT bridge with a Deluxe Stringlock, maybe non -OEM knobs and replacement p'ups from '84... oddball!!

Well, not exactly in my back yard, more like on the edge of the other side of the forest...about 425km away!
I had a look at the seller's web site (music store). Nothing new there as far as pix or information is concerned, except that he's got a price of $299 on it. Looks like he's been trying unsuccessfully to sell for awhile.

Aside from missing her knobs, original pups, bar, pots and wiring Rolling Eyes she ain't too bad. Before I get too excited, anyone had experience with ESP pups??

I keep going back to peek at this to see how it's progressing. It really is an odd ball.
The control layout is very strange, I can't see reaching that far back for a pot, especially if the bar is hanging there. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Also, the jack is in the end instead of the top. Seems to me that this would not be a stable location, given the contoured edge on this thing. Too bad she doesn't have her original pups, it would be interesting to see what they had put in there.

Sold for $76. Cheap!
Had to be worth that, just for parts alone.
