Here's Barry's Westone that was drug behind a truck...

This is SERIOUSLY messed up. Talk about somebody begging for a beatin'. This dude needs to be checked into the smackdown hotel.

Coincidentally I picked up an Electra x650 today (with an amp) that is about 95% NOS.

I don't know about a beating - it's used, the guy says it's used, he showing it's used. Take the used and abused guitars as an opportunity to make it better. If the price is too high, ignore it, or message him and point him ti this forum for some knowldege.

Ugh. I'd still buy it if it were offered at a more reasonable price for the condition, but I'd rather have the full kit anyway...

Just sharing my thoughts on those who show an obvious lack of respect for what once was such a fine instrument. It would be interesting to know if this was a purposeful treatment in an attempt to get a relic vibe into a player grade instrument.

If so that would make the guy a total and complete @$$ in my opinion, rather than just your average run-of-the-mill moron, if you take my meaning.

In all seriousness I do hope the winning bidder is a friend of ours here and takes on the errand of mercy it will take to set things right with this axe.

Knobs!!! Otherwise complete; even the wee switch tip is the right one and it don't look all that bad!! Mind you, I rate everything like this these days on how my Urchin looked when I got it!! Laughing

Your Urchin looks like it suffered a couple of broken bones from a fall downstairs.
This looks like the victim of a "Clockwork Orange" attack in the back room! Shocked

I am amazed however that all the toggles are still in place.
