Absolutely minging when I got it. Filthy, unloved and strangely strung right handed. Previously covered in stickers at some stage in it's life.
So here's what I've done (and what I haven't)
Cleaned and polished although didn't fully strip down
The nut had been ruined by being strung the wrong way around so new graphite nut put in place
String retainers at the locking nut - 2 originals remained but not the screws so they have been replaced. Rather than put a whole new piece in place, fashioned another retainer with the trusty dremmel. Not perfect but it works.
Tremolo arm was missing - left handed basic chrome replacement added
Restrung - nice low action with no buzz and very little fret wear
All electrics working as they should including push pull pots
The bad bits? Discolouration to the body on the cut away where your arm rests
Some surface scratching and dings to the body around the jack socket
A player rather than a museum piece - I've tried my best to capture the points above in the photos
Based in Bawtry near Doncaster UK. I'm not into this for a lot of money and would rather it went to someone who knew what they were buying. £150 a fair price?
