Who is parting out all those Spectrums and Electras?

Post by colt933 on Mon Mar 07, 2011 12:05 pm

On Ebay USA there are 5 necks, 5-6 several bodies, and some pickups.

Is it someone here?

Some of his prices are nuts - see the Floyd tremolos, old rack gear, etc.

Someone south of me. I see his stuff a lot on e(vil)bay. Description reads similarly for most all his auctions. Really odd way to show how much he loves Westies, huh? Evil or Very Mad

The bastid should be shot in his G string.
Repeatedly.

Paging Corsair...what is the correct ammunition to effect corrective behaviour here?
Howitzer perhaps?

Not that anyone here would wish any sort of violence on anyone else...however...I have found that the match grade ammo that Federal manufactures has always produced for me. 168 grain HPBT to start. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I roll my own with moly-coated 155 Palmas over max charge + .7gr Varget in Winchester cases with CCI primers - laser beam in Steyr (sub half MOA). Of course Federal Gold Medal Match is the de facto factory match load and if you do not roll your own and you will be hard pressed to find a factory load that performs uniformly well in just about anything like the FGMM. I went from 3/4" groups at 100 yards to 3/8" when switching from the 168 Sierra to the 155 Palma - literally cut the group size in half.

I remember something like he tore them down to get the parts he needed make his collection factory stock (or something like that). He's got a gallery of this collection on this link, click here. Sweet collection! That Jerk. Yeah, I'm jealous. Mad

So anyway, send in the A-10 Thunderbolt II's. There's no need to get up close and personal when an airstrike is just so fun to watch. Just let me go save his Westie's first. Laughing

Wow, that is a sweet collection. Bastard! I love the Spectrum body style to death (reminds me a little of a strat and SG combined) but perhaps he should invest in a Westie with a different body. Very Happy They are all the same!

I used to roll my own as well, used Old Holborn and sometimes Golden Virginia.
