Holy crap on a cracker!
Sais the paint job on the front is decent! I'd hate to see the back close up.

Kind of reminds me of the UK E bay fella that turns 7 stringers into 6 for people with sausage fingers.... Laughing

Brushy One String is great. I must get around to buying one of his albums.

Green painted fretboards on the other hand...

Not me. I'm just a regular twit. It takes a solid gold twit to paint a fretboard green.

I recently paid about  $150 AUS to get all the bits of a concord 1 6 string to AUS from the UK

I was hoping that someone sufficiently skilled an experienced at restoration would buy it. That's definitely not me.

Hey Twit, someone has to do something to bring it back to life eh? You couldn't possibly make it look any worse than it is already!
