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.

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.
FWIW, an after market esoteric nut is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and a great way to convert your money into someone else’s.

This looks like the victim of a "Clockwork Orange" attack in the back room!
I am amazed however that all the toggles are still in place.
